Our vision: Gender Equality
herCAREER has a vision that we want to realize together with you: gender equality in the workplace!
Women have fought for an incredible number of rights in the past decades. But even today, equal participation is still far from being everywhere. The latest forecast of the World Economic Forum goes even further: nearly 100 years until professional equality between women and men is achieved – that’s how long it takes according to them. To this we must say quite clearly: it must be achieved much quicker!
That is the reason why we created herCAREER – a career fair that takes into account all aspects of female career planning, including family aspects. As a modern and up-to-date platform, herCAREER picks up women where they currently stand in their professional life – starting or moving up the career ladder or starting their own business – and supports and strengthens them in their professional environment. By breaking up hierarchical levels and offering the possibility of a direct exchange of experiences with role models, insiders, experts and personalities from business, science, culture, politics and media, the fair intentionally stands out from existing formats. No matter whether you are a career starter, manager or founder – the exchange of experience and know-how always takes place at eye level and in a relaxed atmosphere.
The exhibition spectrum is also unique: The focus is on attractive employers from a wide range of sectors, exciting executive training offerings, but also topics relating to the compatibility of family and career as well as offers for founders and entrepreneurs, finance and pension provision and law. herCAREER offers about 350 meet-ups and 60 lectures, discussions, book presentations and keynotes with over 450 role models, insiders and experts.
With the help of our digital trade fair matching service, we make it possible to navigate visitors to suitable offers from exhibiting companies. Based on a scientifically based questionnaire technique and special algorithms, the visitors receive personalized matches to the offers of the exhibitors, lectures and meet-ups, but also for a targeted and professional exchange with the booth staff and the speakers.
With these unique and extensive possibilities we want to help women to get more independent and become aware of this opportunity. herCAREER serves as a discussion platform that makes special commitment to women and gender equality public and at the same time helps women to become more visible through their commitment to each other. Our declared goal is to become the leading trade fair for women’s career planning in Europe, so that women can progress faster in their professional advancement.
We would be delighted if you are or become a part of this.
