Your master's degree is in the bag and now it’s time to start your career – but is this harder for women in STEM fields than for men? And if the answer is yes, how can you tell? What helps to combat the feeling of "being the odd one out" and how can you assert yourself as a woman in a male-dominated industry? And how is it possible to reconcile family, career, and leadership ambitions? What qualities and skills do you need to rise to the top? Are there any tips and tricks that you should be aware of whilst studying a STEM subject?

We have invited three successful "STEM women" as role models who will answer these questions from their point of view. They will be talking about their experiences as students and giving us personal insight into their professional lives and the challenges they face as "STEM women". The three speakers have very different, exciting biographies and they will be reporting on life as a single mother, a student with a migration background, and as a woman in a leadership position.

The event is open to all interested parties. However, we are particularly aiming to address female STEM students and give them the opportunity to exchange ideas and ask questions. All those taking part are invited to ask questions.

Role models:

  • Janina Ernst (Concept Engineer, Daimler Trucks / University of Stuttgart alumna and former TryScience mentor)
  • Stefanie Heine (Executive Vice President, Lapp GmbH / Uni Stuttgart alumna and Femtec alumna)
  • Elizaveta Olar (Head of IT, Daimler Protics GmbH / Uni Ulm alumna)

Moderation: Stella Meyer (Consultant for Female Students’ Projects) and Tanja Walther (student projects)
