Germany Launch | Tax, Cultural and Social Factors in Women’s Career Advancement
Even with a woman as Chancellor, professional women in Germany find their career paths diverge from their male colleagues. The tax system, traditional norms and family infrastructure are among the factors that affect the career status and advancement of women, according to keynote speaker Professor Nicola Fuchs-Schündeln, Chair for Macroeconomics and Development at the Goethe University Frankfurt.

Susanne Ballauff, Senior Managing Director, Wellington Management and Co-Chair of 100 Women in Finance’s (100WF) Germany Committee and Alexandra von Kalnein, Executive Director, Natango Invest, will introduce the Germany location, which is the 27th for 100WF, to all participants.

Prior to the keynote, Sarah Dyer, Co-Founder of 100WF, will reflect on the organization’s journey from its founding in 2001 in New York to becoming a global professional membership association with nearly 20,000 members. Amanda Pullinger, Chief Executive Officer of 100WF, will share the organization’s mission and vision for the next 20 years.

Following the program, attendees are invited to join a networking session to meet 100WF’s Committee in Germany, make new connections and learn more about 100WF in Germany.

Email your questions in advance to germany@100women.org or you may submit them during the session.

This virtual event is open to 100WF members and to colleagues based in Germany, regardless of membership in 100WF.
