International Women's Day Forum - Women in STEM

Women make up only 34% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) despite of the critical roles that they play in the field.  How can our society support and empower women, and increase their representation in traditionally male-dominated sectors? Facing gender-specific social expectations, how do women bring talent and creativity, and make meaningful contributions to research, innovation, and business?

You are warmly invited to the International Department´s International Women´s Day Forum. You will hear individual experiences and insight from highly successful women from both academia and industry, and engage in thought-provoking discussions.

Food and Drinks will be provided.

Ms. Christine Grotz, CEO & Shareholder Weber-Hydraulik
