Christian has consistently advocated for DEI at BlackRock by strengthening regional efforts to mitigate potential bias in the hiring process, identify women’s talents and help accelerate their career growth through training, leadership programs, and mentorship. As a member of BlackRock’s Global Human Capital Committee, he has been committed to building, developing, and retaining a diverse talent pipeline where women from all backgrounds can build long-term careers fulfilling their potential. His efforts led BlackRock to have 45% of employees across Continental Europe (CE) being women. In addition, Christian prioritized concrete actions to foster women’s talents at all levels, including senior management. As a result, he has been able to increase the share of female Country Managers in CE from 37% to 63% over 2 years. He also promotes women leaders in key regional roles, such as the recently appointed COO for Continental Europe.
