ATLAS, which stands for Accomplished Top Leaders Advancement Strategy, aims to prepare and position talented women for influential leadership positions. This year, the program includes 16 participants from across the Bank’s business divisions, infrastructure functions and Regional Management.
The ATLAS participants serve as ambassadors with a critical role to the Bank’s focus on leadership and breaking down silos.
The recent program opening included an interactive discussion and dinner, where members of Deutsche Bank’s C-Suite joined participants to discuss leadership and personal accountability as well as execution and delivery for the Bank. Throughout the next 12 months, each woman will be sponsored by a senior executive while receiving tailored training opportunities.
Creating Opportunities for Women
At Deutsche Bank, 42% of the workforce is made up of women – a number that isn’t currently reflected at the senior level but one that they’re actively working to improve upon. The Bank is committed to creating an environment where everyone can thrive – and maximize their potential.
And with programs like ATLAS, Deutsche Bank is leading by example. In 2012, the Bank was recognized with a “Global Award” from Opportunity Now, a campaign for greater gender diversity in business.
Since its initial launch in 2009, over half of past ATLAS participants have moved into more senior roles.

1. Master the BLT factor.
In this case, BLT stands for believability, likability and trustworthiness. Cultivate a reputation that embodies these three key traits. When clients decide with whom to do business, they ask themselves, “Is Mike capable of the work and will I enjoy working with him?” Obviously both criteria matter, but when we need help getting a job done, we most likely choose a congenial person over a more capable but less cordial one.
