Women in leadership initiative: on the way to the milestone of 30% female executives by the end of 2024, DB Group is developing a range of concepts and offers. The activities of DB Group are also recognized externally. DB Group was again recognized for its commitment to more diversity: DB Group is the leader in the Women’s Career Index (FKI) ranking, being the most woman-friendly company. The FKI is ­regarded as the principal measuring instrument for the development of successful careers for women. It provides key figures on new leadership, diversity and transformation.

DB Group’s first Diversity Report shows that in 2022 the average age has fallen to 44.3 years, the proportion of DB employees with an immigration background has risen to 14.6% and the gender ratio is also becoming more balanced. This is reflected, among other things, in a larger proportion of men among part-time employees (to 46.1%).

Starting from 2023, DB employees can also obtain travel discounts for their non-marital partners. Their children also benefit from the new regulation and can now travel by train with their parents at a reduced price. Marriage was previously given preferential treatment for DB employees, but now those in domestic partnerships can also benefit.

Railway trainees against hate and violence: with a fundraising run around Hamburg’s Außenalster lake, future skilled employees of DB Long-Distance won this year’s “Railway trainees against hate and violence” competition. More than 100 participants ran 7.5 kilometers and raised around € 1,500 for the Hamburg-based club Kids&Welcome e. V. With the “Railway trainees against hate and violence” competition, the DB Group has for a number of years been recognizing the commitment of its young talents to an open society free from discrimination. This time, around 350 trainees and 100 mentors carried out 54 projects and set strong examples for greater openness and civil courage.
