Inspiring women of DB Schenker contribute to our diversity of thought
With a diverse workforce and a high representation of female executives and employees, DB Schenker promotes a culture of inclusion and belonging for all to develop and grow in.
“Having a diverse workforce is not enough. Creating an inclusive environment for our diverse workforce to thrive in, is the key to unlock greater creativity, innovation, and groundbreaking solutions for our customers. An integral part of building such an inclusive culture is showcasing our talented employees and their personal stories and celebrating both our similarities and our differences.” says Leandri Meyer, Program Manager Diversity and Inclusion.
Without a doubt, women have come a long way in taking up their rightful place in society as strong, independent and successful entrepreneurs, logistics experts, scientists, engineers, innovators, managers… though this has not come without its unique challenges. With our #ChooseToChallenge campaign, DB Schenker acknowledges these challenges and showcases how their powerful women overcame specific stereotypes in their careers and carved their own personal journeys to success.
