METRO’s Gender Targets
We promote equal professional opportunities for men and women. Accordingly, one of METRO's goals is to further increase the proportion of women in management positions. We set ourselves gender goals for September 2025. By September 2025, METRO AG aims to have 25% women in the first management level below the Management Board and 40% in the second management level below the Management Board. In addition, we have voluntarily set ourselves a target for the proportion of women in management positions at METRO Wholesale. According to this target, by September 2025 the proportion of women in management positions is to reach 30% globally. In addition, according to the objectives of the Supervisory Board, at least one woman should be a member of the Management Board of METRO AG by June 2022. Andrea Euenheim was appointed to the Management Board of METRO AG as the new Labor Director as of November 1, 2019. METRO AG will thus achieve the target set by the Supervisory Board already in 2019. To support these targets, we launched the Women Leadership Programme (WLP) in 2018. This program promotes the top 150 women within METRO with customized training measures. In addition, they are offered the opportunity to contribute to solving relevant business challenges and thus achieve impact and international visibility.
