Frauen in Führungspositionen – Einige Fakten

  • Regina Anna-Maria PalmerEmail author
Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Sowohl in Deutschland als auch weltweit sind weiterhin relativ wenige Frauen in Führungspositionen tätig. Diese wenigen weiblichen Führungskräfte weichen in ihrem Verhalten kaum von ihren männlichen Kollegen ab. Das resultiert aus Prozessen, die eng mit geschlechtsbezogener Voreingenommenheit in Verbindung stehen. Weibliche Führungskräfte werden weniger wahrscheinlich eingestellt, schlechter in ihrer Leistung beurteilt und weniger gemocht als männliche Führungskräfte. Eine Gegenstrategie ist das Verleugnen der eigenen Weiblichkeit und die Anpassung an die männlichen Verhaltensweisen, die noch die Führungskulturen vieler Unternehmen bestimmen. Dies führt jedoch dazu, dass die männlichen Führungskulturen bestehen bleiben. Nur eine Veränderung der Unternehmens- und Führungskulturen kann nachhaltig eine Steigerung des Frauenanteils in Führungspositionen bewirken.
