Stephanie Bschorr has been president of the Association of German Women Entrepreneurs since 2012.
She campaigns for a quotas to put women in the boardroom and for men to take over more of the task of raising children in the family. She also runs her own business, a Berlin auditing agency. On Talking Germany, she tells us about how she juggles a career and family.
Stephanie Bschorr's hobby is sailing. Whenever she has time, she takes to the water. It’s a discipline where being a strategic thinker helps a lot, she says. The qualified lawyer runs an auditing firm in Berlin together with two partners. Bschorr joined the company while still a student – and now has a 30 percent stake in the enterprise. Among her other activities is president of the national association of businesswomen, which lobbies for more women in Germany’s boardrooms. Bschorr is married with two children – and is only too aware of the challenges involved in balancing career and family.
