Measures to promote women to the Managing Board, Supervisory Board and management positions in the group

Appreciation of diversity and, therefore, removing barriers in women’s careers is one of the key elements of the human resource strategy at VIG.

Gender is one of the three priorities of the diversity concept at both Group and VIG Holding level.

Nomination procedures for Group-wide training programmes for management, high potentials and experts are also required to include an equal number of women as far as possible, with the local human resources department bearing ultimate responsibility.

Female supervisory board members

Women hold around 18.0% of the positions at Vienna Insurance Group supervisory boards across Europe (as at 31 December 2017) and 40.0% of the positions in VIG Holding.

Female managing board members

Women hold around 22.9% of the positions on the Managing Boards of VIG insurance companies and around 11.6% of the Managing Board chairs are women. In VIG Holding, 40.0% of the Managing Board Members were female as of 31 December 2017 (since 1 February 2018: 50.0%). Elisabeth Stadler has been the head of the Group since 2016.
