IDC European Woman in Venture Capital

EUROPEAN WOMEN IN VC IDC #EUR148997722 © IDC 2022 22 At Alter Domus, inclusion, diversity and innovation are at the forefront of our culture. All leaders have inclusion-based KPIs, and our ESG scorecard reflects the importance of the topic in executing our business strategy. To guarantee permanent progress, the Global Inclusion and Diversity Council, with senior representation across each of our regions, is responsible for reviewing all metrics in place, such as demographic analysis, monthly engagement surveys, yearly pay review, etc. Taking gender equality as a priority example, the analysis indicated a balanced workforce at junior levels. However, male colleagues are still over-represented in more senior roles, despite an already strong and improving gender balance at Group Executive and Supervisory Board level. To address this gap, we have implemented a 50% female shortlist policy for all external hires at senior level, and we continue to focus on the internal advancement of women to leadership positions as opportunities arise.
