Video: These Are Germany's Industry 4.0 Experts
"Is Industry 4.0 actually male?" asked Isabel Hochgesand, managing director at Procter & Gamble and responsible for logistics in Germany, Austria and Switzerland two years ago in her management column for the online magazine SAAL ZWEI. The occasion was a panel discussion at the CeBIT, where, with a few exceptions, there were no women in the audience.
Bisnode Germany also found that women are significantly underrepresented in the management of Industry 4.0 companies in the study "Women in Management in Industry 4.0" in 2016. On average, 11.7 percent of the top management positions are filled by women - in Industry 4.0 this is only 7.2 percent.
