The Women's Career Index: If you can measure it, you can manage it

The FKi provides figures, data and facts.

If you want top women to be in top positions, you need clear indicators and an independent management tool. You will find the Women's Career Index (FKi) to be this tool.

The procurement, selection and development of excellent specialists and managers are a future oriented way for every company to get the best. Innovative companies need to know which measures effectively lead to more women in leading positions and how they avoid losing employees in crucial life and career phases.

The Women’s Career Index: More women in leading positions is essential and feasible for your company too

Ladies and Gentleman, I am delighted that the Women Career Index successfully continues with its 5th survey wave. The Women Career Index ascertains which area of activity companies are committed to

10 reasons to use the Women Career Index as a management tool

  1. Your company can analyse its situation on the basis of its own data, draw industry comparisons and evaluate them using benchmarks
  2. On-time, manageable costs, clear performances and solid results
  3. Your commitment is now easily measurable and documented
  4. Transparency and practicality create trust – in the entire workforce
  5. The quality of the results is secured through scientific market research methods
  6. Through working groups, best practice and intensive exchange at the events, experiences are shared
  7. They discuss which strategies and measures are successful in practice and lead to a measurable increase in quality and efficiency
  8. Your company will become an even more attractive employer for excellent women
  9. FKI does not aim to any commitment and provides all information  to the company
  10. The project was funded by the Ministry of Family Affairs from 2012 to 2014. Since 2016, Federal Minister of the Interior, Manuela Schwesig, takes over the patronage for the symposium and award ceremony
