FemaleExcellence@zeb

Our mission at zeb is to enhance the performance and competitive strength of our clients. To achieve this, we bring diverse perspectives of the smartest minds together—because we believe that diversity generates the best results both for our clients and for our employees. With our women@zeb network, we wish to promote the exchange of thoughts and experiences of various groups among themselves and with others. Several times a year, we organize get-togethers—always on different topics, prepared by one of our female consultants. In doing so, we also explicitly aim for exchanges with other networks or people in order to learn from them or pass on our own expertise.

Our Offer

Network

women@zeb creates a special framework for networking with other female consultants and offers workshops and opportunities to exchange experiences.

Development

You alone decide where your career should go! Career planning, a variety of working models and training programs make it possible for your career to fit in with your life in the long term.

Support

With our buddy program you will have a female colleague at your side during the recruiting process and at the start of your career, who will support you in onboarding and provide you with helpful background information.

FROM OUR NETWORK

Summer Meeting

Hamburg. We started off with an enjoyable lunch at Planten un Blomen. Afterwards, we had an interactive coaching session at the Beehive Coworking Space where we experienced how to make even better use of our strengths in various situations.

Spring Meeting

Berlin. At our women@zeb spring meeting we got together for an exchange of thoughts and experiences. Our guest was Tanja Mueller-Ziegler, board member of the Berliner Sparkasse, who proved to be an inspiring example of female leadership.

FinTech Ladies@zeb

Berlin. In March 2018, the FinTech Ladies met at zeb’s Berlin office. We had a lively discussion about where the fintech sector is heading and how it is integrating itself into the market alongside the established players.

Milena Rottensteiner, Senior Consultant


What do you like about your job at zeb?
The degree of freedom in the organization and design of one’s own work. This concerns the time-related and geographical component and especially the content-related topic development: Set impulses and drive topics that inspire you.

What kind of advice do you have for women who are interested in a career in consulting?
Especially we as women should be aware of what we stand for personally and of what is important to us. Women should only adapt within these limits and not lose their individuality.

Alice Hammarroth, Manager


How are you being supported? How do you support others?
Aside from having friends around at the office I always feel comfortable asking my superiors of ad hoc help. I think our very friendly atmosphere helps us all to feel safe and therefore support is not hard to get.

What is your advice to women that are interested in starting a career in consulting?
If you work hard and if you always try to be a good team player then both your colleagues and clients will appreciate you and what you do. This applies regardless if you are a man or a woman. If you need help, ask a colleague/superior in time so that there is always margins to deliver to the client on time.

Dr. Reemda Jaeschke, Senior Consultant


What is so special about being a consultant—how do you experience the day-to-day consulting life?
No day is like another. You never cease to learn new things on every project. I like the continuous development. And the everyday consulting life definitively gives us this opportunity.

What kind of advice do you have for women who are interested in a career in consulting?
Just do it! Just thinking about it means you seem to be interested. And you won’t be able to stop thinking about it until you give it a go. You can still do a “normal” job later.

Judith Böß, Senior Manager


What do you like about your job at zeb?
To be able to take the road less traveled by in search of new paths.

How do you support others?
I always try to keep a patch of sky above their lives.

What kind of advice do you have for women who are interested in a career in consulting?
Be a first class edition of yourself, not a second-rate copy of someone else.

Katharina Krüger, Senior Consultant


What do you like about your job at zeb?
In my opinion, the flexible advancement opportunities are outstanding. As a result, the potential to influence your own career is very high. And there is plenty of room for participation in developing topics and driving change.

What is so special about being a consultant—how do you experience the day-to-day consulting life?
We do a lot together as a team. We work together very intensively and we also go out to dinner after work. Teamwork on the project is of utmost importance: everyone has their own tasks, of course, but only all tasks combined make up the big picture. Traveling a lot and getting to know many different clients and countries together creates a bond between us.
