Events like herCAREER have a fantastic impact on women’s careers. Not only do they provide an opportunity to hear from a variety of experienced professionals, but it also encourages women to meet other women going on the same journey, and support each other.

„It is important that we exchange ideas with other women across national and corporate borders. I don’t know that much about the world of work in Germany yet, so I’m really looking forward to learning more. I would like to meet people at herCAREER who have chosen a completely different career path, because this helps us to broaden our horizons.“

Former member of the management and control board of Lacoste, co-founder of the clothing brand Fusalp President of the Porosus Endowment Fund

"Too few women still make it into management positions. Incorrectly conducted unconscious bias training and one-sided demands such as the call for a 30-hour workweek fall short. Women's (associations) themselves are unfortunately often too timid in supporting women in leadership positions, thus promoting lip service in company reports. I am very much looking forward to discussing with visitors at herCAREER what really works to achieve equality."

Chair of Strategy and Organization at TUM. Capital magazine lists her as Top 40 among 40 "digital elite"
