07 Aug 2019 | Press Release No. 25

The Employers' Group on the BA Board of Directors has proposed the former and long-standing Chairman of the Executive Board of the NRW (North Rhine-Westphalia) Regional Directorate, Christiane Schönefeld, as a new member of the Executive Board.

Christiane Schönefeld was most recently part of the Federal Government’s “Growth, Structural Change and Employment" commission (the "coal commission"). Over the past few years, this renowned labour market expert has developed and implemented a new concept for the transition from school to work with the state government and other labour market partners in the NRW region. This is one of the foundations for the BA initiative: “Lifelong career guidance prior to entering working life”, which will be rolled out nationwide this year.
