Women's Board Award – Reason Why


Die Baloise unterstützt als Hauptsponsor den Women's Board Award, der dieses Jahr zum ersten Mal in der Schweiz stattfindet, und engagiert sich damit für eine stärkere Vertretung von Frauen in Verwaltungsräten kotierter Gesellschaften. Dabei geht es der Baloise nicht nur um einen höheren Frauenanteil, sondern auch um die Würdigung der Kompetenzen, Fähigkeiten, Erfahrungen und Potentiale der Frauen. Durch den direkten Austausch mit den Kandidatinnen nutzt die Baloise die Chance, Kontakte zu potentiellen neuen Mitgliedern des eigenen Verwaltungsrates herzustellen, um die Diversität und den Generationenwechsel in der eigenen Unternehmung voranzutreiben. Das Engagement als Hauptsponsorin ist Teil der vielfältigen Anstrengungen der Baloise zur Förderung der Diversität auf allen Ebenen des Unternehmens.


As the main sponsor, Baloise supports the Women's Board Award, which will be held for the first time in Switzerland this year, and is therefore committed to increasing the representation of women on Boards of Directors. Baloise is not only concerned with a higher proportion of women, but also with the appreciation of women's skills, abilities, experiences and potential. Through the direct exchange with the candidates, Baloise seizes the opportunity to establish contacts with potential new members of its own Board of Directors in order to promote diversity and the generational change in its own company structure. The commitment as main sponsor is part of Baloise's multifaceted efforts to promote diversity at all levels of the company.
