FRankfurt / Main (DPA) – Belen Garrizo, the appointed CEO of Merck, a chemical and pharmaceutical company, is not thinking much about the legal quota for women in the economy.
“I am against any form of discrimination, including positive discrimination,” she told the Frankfurt Olgmein Sontagseitung. The 60-year-old Spaniard, who studied medicine and worked at Merck since 2011, will be the first woman to head a Dox company since May 1.
“I do not think I did anything to destroy the majority of German men,” Garijo told the Associated Press. “All I have done all my life is work hard and seize opportunities.”
At the same time, she wants to work to ensure that more women enter management positions than ever before. The ratio in Merck is 35 percent. That is more than many other companies, but we have not yet reached our goal. “
For her, the equality between men and women is “just a kind of ice breaker.” This is to move many different people into positions of responsibility as the company benefits from it.
