only clear rates the men carpet dominated days leave, of which more and more companies are convinced. On the occasion of international women’s day Expo 100 companies will become conductive with a specific quota targets and support measures. “During the next three years we want to raise the proportion of women at all levels of Management on a third,” says the Swiss card-the head of Florence Schnydrig Moser, compared to the company’s network Advance.
