Working with leading global organisations

“Siemens is leading the way in our sector with the launch of our new ‘Women into Leadership’ programme. In a period when all big companies are under pressure to achieve the Government’s target of 30% female boardroom representation, I am so proud that we have walked the walk and translated debate into action. This is not about meeting targets. We have such an incredible diverse talent pool and we want to be the company where women have the same opportunities to rise to the top and become leaders just as much as men”.

Maria Ferraro, Chief Financial Officer, Siemens
