How can women be encouraged to take on leadership positions?
"We respect diversity and promote individual development processes" - This is how Fujitsu has summarized its internal values. The vision is to create an inclusive corporate culture in which everyone can be themselves. The promotion of women is a particular concern of the tech company. But how can they motivate young female employees to take on leadership roles at Fujitsu? Mentoring programs have been used to inspire more women to join the leadership team. In practice, however, it became apparent that not all coaching measures could be implemented and evaluated as planned. The diversity managers saw potential for improvement, especially in bringing mentees and mentors together. The desire arose for a customized matching algorithm and a structured, measurable mentoring format that could be applied globally.
