When promoted to Managing Partner Europe earlier in 2021, Christian enacted two policy changes. The first was aimed at talent acquisition, allowing business leaders to go beyond their hiring targets if they managed to attract female talent. This initiative allowed Oliver Wyman to hire five additional highly talented female colleagues. The second policy, which was implemented after a strong correlation was observed between the sponsorship of women and their career progress, asked each member of the European Leadership Team to sponsor two female colleagues. Christian has also been working closely with the HR team to ensure Oliver Wyman creates a ‘back to office work’ policy which allows employees to retain the benefits of hybrid working. The Men4Change program he co-founded two years ago has run workshops with many clients on the topic of gender balance, as a forum to share experiences and as an opportunity to get to know like-minded peers.
