In the media

Here is a collection of articles and interviews where I got to talk about topics that matter a lot to me. For interview or other related requests please contact iam@simonemenne.de

__________

Human Ressources Manager

It’s all about changes: In an interview with the German Human Ressources Manager, I talked about what changes and starting fresh mean to me – and why companies should be more open to them as well.

__________

Rheinische Post

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, I was interviewed by Rheinische Post. I talked about the lack of women both in parliament and in leadership positions – and suggested some ideas how that could change, such as employees being able to manage their time and physical presence in their office more independently.

__________

Deutschlandfunk

Currently, there are only very few women in the German IT industry. Starting already in kindergarden, girls are discouraged from testing their logical skills or becoming interested in the STEM fields. For a Deutschlandfunk piece, I got to talk about what could help increase the numbers of women in STEM jobs – from Home Office options to legislation.

Anne Will talkshow

I recently had the great opportunity to discuss how innovation and digitalization are impacting the workforce on a German primetime talk show called Anne Will. You can find the video of the show here.

__________

z.ett

For a podcast with the magazine ze.tt, Christoph Bornschein and I talked about power in the work space, hierarchies and how work environments could change if power was distributed more equally.

__________

Edition F

After speaking at Female Future Force Day, I had an interesting conversation with Edition F magazine on how the representation of women within companies has changed – and what we still have to work on in the next years.

__________

Finance Magazin

With the German Finance Magazine, I talked about whether fixed quota for women in board positions make sense or not.

The German Handelsblatt stopped by my office for a chat on the meaning of power in companies – especially for women.

Handelsblatt

Supervising companies and loving art are two completely different things? I don’t think so – and the German Handelsblatt agrees with me in this nice portrait.

__________

Handelsblatt

The German Newpaper “Handelsblatt” issued an article about the developments in German Supervisory Boards. There is a promising trend towards more diversity in gender as well as background and boards are becoming more colourful. I strongly believe that various perspectives will help to see the customer and employee point of view better and therefore help the management in steering the company successfully.

__________

Süddeutsche

For Süddeutsche Zeitung, start-up founder Verena Pausder and I talked about being a leader as a woman and how we as a society can prepare for the “digital age”. The conversation was turned into podcast on our experiences as business women.

__________

ARD

18 women – 18 stories: It was an honour to share my story in the ARD documentary “The little difference”:

__________

Bunte

I had a chat with German Bunte magazine about my future plans.

__________

Stern

During this interview with German magazine Stern, I got to talk about why the #metoo movement matters in Germany as well and why women should aim for power in their work environment.

__________

Wirtschaftswoche

My opinion on Lufthansa’s new design was cited by German magazine Wirtschaftswoche (“Lufthansa fliegt zum ersten Mal im neuen Blau – Ex-Finanzchefin Menne nicht begeistert“ by Tristan Heming, May 11). I still ask myself: Where is the iconic Lufthansa yellow?
