International Women’s Day – Women at RAPA

International Women’s Day – Women at RAPA

March 8 is an important date for women everywhere. Women’s Day has been advocating for equal rights for women and men since 1911. Diverse issues such as women’s rights, women’s quotas and violence against women are addressed today.

At RAPA, women have played a role since the founding days. In production, women take on tasks that require dexterity and precision, such as assembly and quality control. In fact, in the post-war years, women predominantly worked at RAPA and kept production running. Today, women work at RAPA in all professional fields, full-time or part-time, and at every career level. For example, as assembly managers, like Carolin Kunz, or like Elvira Bayer, who manages our central workshop.

Furthermore, RAPA is committed to training young women in technical professions. Currently, the share of women in the active workforce is 43%. This is evidence of a working environment that is attractive to all genders. And there is also a woman at the top of the company: Karin Wolf is our RAPA WOMAN in the boardroom. Together with Dr. Roman Pausch, the management duo is responsible for the company’s fortunes.

How good that we now know that pink glitter and female empowerment are not mutually exclusive, but go together brilliantly!
Cheers to us RAPA women and all the women of the world!
