In 2017 the FPI Fair Pay Innovation Lab was founded by Henrike von Platen to support companies and organisations by showing them ways of contributing to close the gender pay gap. She has one goal: fair pay for everyone. The business expert with a degree in business informatics founded a women’s investment club, is a council member at the University of Munich and commits herself to the workgroup of German supervisory boards AdAR, the IWF International Women´s Federation and to FidAR, the initiative for women in supervisory boards.
Henrike von Platen was president of Business and Professional Women (BPW) Germany from 2010 to 2016. In 2016, Henrike von Platen, a business and financial expert, started the Fair Pay Alliance and gained a lot of support from actors in the economic and political spheres. Henrike von Platen is strongly convinced that fair pay could be very quickly achieved – if everyone were to push for change.
As a speaker at conferences and seminars, a guest on radio and TV talk shows, and a commentator on socio-political developments, my preferred topics are gender issues and money. My position is clear and underpinned by many strong arguments – to attract support in order to get campaigns on the road and to initiate change. I also enjoy debating, particularly on issues such as gender quotas, Equal Pay and Fair Pay.
