How has Female Lights contributed to solving the problem?
The measurement instrument of our tool was used to survey and evaluate gender equality.
~ 3,400 records
Gender Equality Score 7.1/10
Status July 2023
Around 3,400 data sets were collected over a period of six months. They show that employees feel equal especially in the areas of "working conditions, parental leave and re-entry" (score > 7.9). In addition, a high feeling of security and no current challenges is shown in relation to the area of "sexualisation" (8.2).
Particularly noteworthy are family-friendly working time models, a good work-life balance, the acceptance that both genders can take parental leave and that the return from parental leave or re-entry is perceived as stress-free.
The analysis also showed: Women feel slightly disadvantaged in terms of salary, although the framework conditions are the same for both genders. Female Lights can also provide the insight that employers should talk more about the equality they already practise and show that there are no differences between the sexes. There is potential for optimisation in the existing role models, the acceptance of external appearance and the distribution of praise and recognition between the sexes. A confidant, measures for the advancement of women and gender equality guidelines are desired.
After the cooperation, there is more awareness of the issue, according to the power trio. "The dialog about it is the first step in the right direction," says Carmen Rohlf. It was perceived that the staff was happy about the 2x weekly questions. They were curious to see what the end result would be and discussed which question everyone had received and how it was answered. "In my mind, the questions made a difference. I noticed myself that I was dealing with topics that I had previously blocked out," said Kerstin Soltau.
