The starting point of the FQ movement was to increase the proportion of female speakers at professional conferences in order to support the representation of women. To this end, workshops and lectures are offered internationally for interested female visitors at various conferences. These workshops and lectures are now also offered at universities and by industrial partners. Meanwhile, the movement under the label FQ includes an international network on several continents.
In order to give the FQ movement at HPI more visibility and to give equality a physical space, the FQ Lounge is located in the main building of HPI Potsdam. It offers space for informal exchange on topics of women's advancement and gender equality and provides an area to host events, lectures and workshops.
