Ghada Trotabas, Executive Vice President & Managing Director, Siemens Healthineers Great Britain & Ireland

 IWD 2023

My parents raised me to believe that being a woman does not make me “less than”. That being a woman in no way limits what I can accomplish.

When I think of gender equity on days like today, I think of a world where a man or a woman are just as likely to be in any role. A world where they are assumed to be equally competent regardless of their gender. A world where women break through the glass ceiling by being who they are and not by emulating masculine leadership styles.

Women are vital to our success at Siemens Healthineers.

We are committed to strengthening gender equity and to creating an environment where all women can thrive to their greatest potential. We are working together to make meaningful and sustainable progress: shifting mindsets, reducing unconscious biases, and increasing the number of women in senior management positions. Today, we have 23% women in senior management roles, an increase of 35% since we began focusing on this topic.

Much progress has been made. And much remains to be done. 

On International Women’s Day, we celebrate what we’ve achieved, and we renew our commitment to #EmbraceEquity. We are on our way, taking one step at a time, all the time.
