Abstract

Der Frauenanteil an Aufsichtsratsposten ist bei den großen Banken und Sparkassen sowie bei Versicherungsgesellschaften in Deutschland gering. Im Bankgewerbe beträgt er 15 % und bei Versicherungen 11 %. Dass dennoch in den meisten Aufsichts- oder Verwaltungsräten Frauen vertreten sind, geht überwiegend auf die Entsendung durch Arbeitnehmervertretungen zurück. Die Vorstandssitze der großen Unternehmen des Versicherungs- und Kreditgewerbes sind dagegen - wie auch bei den anderen großen Unternehmen - fest in Männerhand. Nur 2,5 % dieser Posten werden von Frauen eingenommen. Damit besteht eine eklatante Diskrepanz zwischen dem hohen Anteil weiblicher Beschäftigter in der Finanzbranche insgesamt (54 %) und ihrer Repräsentanz in den Top-Entscheidungsgremien.
