Führungspositionen: Frauen geringer entlohnt und nach wie vor seltener vertreten


Author Info

  • Elke Holst
  • Mechthild Schrooten


Die Entlohnung von Frauen in Führungspositionen bleibt deutlich hinter der von Männern zurück. Unter Kostenaspekten müsste dies für Arbeitgeber ein Anreiz sein, Frauen zu beschäftigen. Tatsächlich sind Frauen in höheren Positionen aber nach wie vor viel seltener vertreten als Männer. Dies gilt insbesondere für Positionen mit sogenannten umfassenden Führungsaufgaben. Um den Anteil von Frauen in Führungspositionen deutlich zu steigern, müssen offenbar entschiedenere Maßnahmen zur Herstellung beruflicher Chancengleichheit ergriffen werden als bisher. Dazu gehören neben der Verbesserung der Vereinbarkeit von Familie und Beruf auch gezielte Personalentwicklungsmaßnahmen für qualifizierte Frauen.
