BE WHO YOU ARE, BE YOURSELF
THE FIRST ŠKODA DIVERSITY MEETUP TOOK PLACE ON 10/2/2021. IT FOCUSED
ON THE SUPPORT OF WOMEN IN MANAGEMENT.
ŠKODA CEO Thomas Schäfer introduced the topic of diversity and explained why it is so
important to ŠKODA AUTO. Our guest speaker was Daniela Pešková, Board Member at
Česká spořitelna responsible for retail banking, and the TOP Female Executive in the Czech
Republic for 2020. She described the personal dilemmas she has had to deal with – balancing
family and career, choosing between security and professional growth, and handling the pitfalls
of trying to be authentic and a perfectionist at the same time. More than 150 women
participated in the online meeting, with an online app where they could send their questions.
Read more about this event in the March ŠKODA Mobil, which is coming out on 26/2/2021.
