The low representation of women in entrepreneurship and leadership in the German economy sets the stage for WE.Lead, a project dedicated to addressing this issue.

More than 50% of university graduates in Germany are women. In fact, since 2012, there have been more female graduates in business administration than their male counterparts. However, despite these achievements, the proportion of women in leadership positions within the business sector remains significantly lower. As of 2022, only 5.6% of German companies had a female CEO, and a mere 20% of start-ups were initiated by women (Female Founders Report, 2022).

Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has further widened the gender imbalance. Against this backdrop, WE.Lead aims to harness more inclusive narratives at the organisational and ecosystem levels to increase the number of women in leadership positions and support women entrepreneurs in launching and expanding their ventures.
