SAVE THE DATE: Panel discussion “Where are the women in facility management?”
Together with female executives from the industry, we are getting to the bottom of this question

The management level of facility management is male-dominated. There are many women in the industry, yet mostly not on the upper management levels. And this is exactly the topic we want to question at our third Wowflow panel discussion on November 24th:

Where are the women in facility management? And how can we promote them?

To find out what a woman’s path to the top floor of facility management looks like, we invited four women who have made this leap. They will give us insights into their professional careers, into everyday life in a “men’s industry” and tell us why FM can be the right job for women – also at the management level. In contrast to this, the proportion of women in the building cleaning sector predominates: there it is 60 to 70 percent. Why is that? Another question that we want to get to the bottom of.

At Wowflow, we believe there is great room for improvement in the facility management industry. One of them is figuring out what the industry can do to provide equal career opportunities for all talent, regardless of gender.

We are pleased to welcome the following panelists, who can report from their own experience what it means to work in a management position in FM:

  • Miriam Terner, Head of Legal, Fleet and Facility Management at Regionalmedien Austria AG
  • Evelyn Groß, Head of Facility Management at QPS Austria GmbH
  • Anette Weller, board member at Gegenbauer Holding
  • Katrin Schwarz, Senior Maintenance Manager at OBI Bau- und Heimwerkermärkte Systemzentrale
