Women Supervisory Board members
Women now hold 11% of the supervisory board positions in Austrian Vienna Insurance Group companies.
Martina Dobringer was newly elected to the Vienna Insurance Group Supervisory Board in 2011.
Women Managing Board members
Vienna Insurance Group believes that women must first have careers in operational positions before becoming eligible to hold positions at the supervisory board level, and therefore promotes such careers.
As in the previous year, 20% of the positions (Europe-wide) at the highest operational level of the Group (managing board) were held by women. Seven insurance companies had chairwomen for their managing boards, and another four had deputy chairwomen.
40% of the members of the managing board of Wiener Städtische Austria are women, and Johanna Stefan will become General Manager of the Austrian company Donau Versicherung starting in June 2012.
Women in management positions
Women hold approximately 40% of the management positions at the level directly below the managing board in VIG insurance companies across Europe.
Two managers reporting directly to the managing board of the Vienna Insurance Group holding company returned to their management positions in 2010 and 2011 after maternity leave and are now working a flexible full-time schedule.
