Ronja Hoffacker

Co-founder of equaly, consultant, compatibility expert

Ronja Hoffacker is co-founder of equaly, a female-led impact startup from Cologne and Berlin with the mission to close the gender care gap. She previously worked as a management consultant at McKinsey. Ronja has been working on issues of gender equality and how norms and expectations influence individual decision-making since university.

She started her company while being on parental leave with a 6-month-old baby – this was only possible because she herself lives in an equal partnership. She realized that this is still not the norm because she was repeatedly asked by those around her how she organizes her everyday life and creates space for herself as a mother.

Ronja has already accompanied several companies through transformation processes and supported them in adapting their internal culture. As an entrepreneur, she has set herself the goal of creating the most work-life balance-friendly start-up in Germany with equaly.
