How can companies create a culture of care and flexibility to support employees in embracing diverse care responsibilities beyond traditional parenthood? Learn with Anna Pinger-Creitz and Christian Ludwig.
In the podcast episode 3, we discuss the importance of acknowledging and supporting care work beyond traditional parenthood roles. Our guests, Anna Pinger-Creitz (Global Lead Diversity & Inclusion at BearingPoint) and Christian Ludwig (Chief of Staff to CDO at Beiersdorf), shed light on creating flexible and empathetic corporate cultures to meet employees' diverse care responsibilities.
The podcast emphasizes the need for individualized support, listening to employees' needs, and providing tailored solutions throughout their careers. Going beyond regulatory requirements helps retain valuable talent while fostering a caring and inclusive workplace. Christian shares insights on the power of speaking up as an employee and creating safe spaces, exemplified by the "Dad.icated" grassroots community. This community challenges traditional gender norms in fatherhood, inspiring others to take on caregiving roles and advocating for a more balanced approach to work and family life.
As the Global Lead Diversity & Inclusion at BearingPoint and dedicated mother, Anna plays a pivotal role in successfully establishing and implementing both family supportiveness and female leadership frameworks within the firm, driving positive change and promoting inclusiveness.
As Chief of Staff to the Chief Digital Officer at Beiersdorf and dedicated father, he is the visionary behind the grassroots community "Dad.icated". He passionately advocates for active fatherhood, including work-life balance and alternative working models and an inclusive and supportive work culture.
