International Women's Day – Success by female power

Since this year, the management has also had a female dual leadership, consisting of Magdalena Balanicka (CEO) and Katrin Krauß-Herkert (COO/CFO).

Having a high proportion of women has a long tradition at FORUM MEDIA GROUP – an important success factor. Founded in 1988 as a two-person company, around 1,100 people now work for the media group in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. Around 73 % of the workforce worldwide is female. Even though the Covid crisis has caused a revenue decline, particularly in the events sector, the media group has managed to stay profitable and develop innovative new products.

FORUM MEDIA GROUP also employs many female trainees (here is an archive picture from 2019).

FORUM actively promotes women and offers many benefits that are easy to combine with a family life: Flexible part-time models, family-friendly working hours and the option of working remote are just a few of them. Management positions can also be held on a part-time basis. Our subsidiaries also offer benefits like childcare during holidays or fitness and health programs.
