The women@schnellecke initiative is committed to more equal opportunities, diversity and development possibilities for women within Schnellecke. Its members are colleagues from different locations, countries, professions and age groups. They all have one thing in common: they want to make Schnellecke an attractive employer and strengthen the role of women in the company.
Dr. Klaus van Marwyk, CFO Schnellecke logistics, is sponsor of the women@schnellecke initiative.

It promotes equal opportunities and diversity in the company and thus reflects our values - the Schnellecke Spirit - in a special way. I am pleased that, through a lot of commitment and dedication, a program has been created that promotes cooperation across divisions and levels and that also enables us to make the best possible use of the skills of our female employees."
