Diversity and Prout Performer List at METRO
Since summer 2017, METRO has been a member of the PROUT AT WORK network. Being a PROUTEMPLOYER, METRO wants to provide an open working environment for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, all characteristics and attributes. The employee network METRO Pride, founded in 2014, is an internal network that aims to ensure more openness, exchange and visibility. In addition, initiatives such as the Diversity & Inclusion Days make the dimensions of diversity tangible for all employees.
With the PROUT PERFORMER lists, PROUT AT WORK creates visibility for role models, who make a substantial contribution for equal opportunities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, intersexual and queer persons at work. The awarded PROUT PERFORMERS show that a successful career at work is possible regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. In 2021, several METRO employees made it to the lists: Nikita Baranov, Executive Assistant to CHRO METRO AG, takes second place among the PROUTVoices. Dirk Haushalter, Office & Property Development Management METRO DIGITAL, is also ranked. Among the PROUTExecutiveAllies, Andrea Euenheim, CHRO and labour director of METRO AG, leads the ranking, Veronika Pountcheva, Head of Global Diversity & Inclusion METRO AG, and Laura Halfas, Global Director Corporate Responsibility METRO AG, are also listed as supporters.
