Information on gender quotas
A focus of our human resources strategy is to recruit and promote well-qualified women. The Company has set itself targets for the proportion of women holding leadership positions for the time horizon up until 2021: By the end of 2021, women should comprise 8 percent of the first management tier below the Board of Management and 16 percent in the second management tier.
The proportion of women on the Board of Management of AUDI AG is also to be increased in the long term. The Supervisory Board of AUDI AG decides each year on the target quota of women on the Board of Management. Up until December 31, 2017, the Supervisory Board of AUDI AG had resolved a target quota of zero, for the sake of formality. There were no women on the Board of Management at the end of 2017. In the year under review, the target quota for the proportion of women on the Board of Management up until December 31, 2018, was resolved to be zero percent, for formality’s sake.
In addition, the legally prescribed 30 percent quota applies to the Supervisory Board. As of December 31, 2017, there were 25 percent women on the Supervisory Board of AUDI AG. It should be noted that existing mandates in the reporting year prevented the full implementation of the legally required quota.
Audi is generally dependent on certain surrounding conditions because many areas of the Company need predominantly technical graduates. For that reason, we use the proportion of female graduates from each degree program as a guideline. Averaged across all degree programs that are relevant for the Company, the target proportion of women among new recruits has been determined to be around 30 percent.
