FQ Lounge @ HPI

The FQ Lounge @ HPI (H.E-06), established at HPI in 2019, facilitates networking between HPI students and the global network of the "Female Quotient "movement, which seeks to promote equality between women and men in all areas of society. FQ stands for „Female Quotient“ and defines a movement for the advancement of women that has been developed and spread throughout the USA.

[Translate to Englisch:] HPI FQ-Lounge

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.
