"We should not define the home improvement industry as a 'man's world'." This is what Jim Inglis, former top manager at the world market leader The Home Depot and now an internationally active consultant, writes. He responded with a detailed statement to a request from the German trade magazine diy-Fachmagazin. The editorial team dedicated the March issue to the topic "Women in the DIY industry".
