Women in Tech: Step into Your IT Career

The Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) offers 15 career scholarships to motivated and committed female computer science students. The scholarships include tickets for the renowned "European Women in Technology" conference, as well as a networking day to improve skills and step into a successful IT-career. The conference is one of Europe's largest trade fairs for women in the tech industry and is being organized this year as a global online festival.

Talking together about IT career paths, finding inspiration and gaining new professional skills - that's what the Hasso Plattner Institute's career scholarships are all about. After all, the proportion of women in the IT industry is still stagnating, as it is in IT lecture halls, and there is often a lack of exchange and role models for one's own career path.

The scholarships are aimed at motivated and committed female students who want to address their IT careers and the challenges surrounding the topic of #womenintech.

The networking day at HPI

With a wide-ranging agenda at the networking day, HPI provides impetus for self-reflection and exchange and imparts tips and skills that participants can use to prepare for the next step in their careers.

Workshop with Digital Coach Kathrin Koehler

In a workshop, the participating female students receive exciting tips and skills for their own online presence on Linkedin and successful networking via the digital business platforms.

 

The professional input is provided by coach Kathrin Koehler. Kathrin Koehler is an experienced media generalist, digital coach and trainer with great expertise in the field of digital communication. The media scientist and journalist has been working in the communications industry for more than 25 years on a permanent and freelance basis and combines the analog with the digital in her projects.

We are looking forward to the exciting input on October 01.

 


The online festival "The Women in Technology World Series"

The Online Festival will take place for the second time as a replacement for the "European Women in Technology" conference. More than 100 speakers are expected over three intensive days. The festival attracts female IT experts from all over the world. In addition to presentations on current topics from the technology sector, the festival is a platform for the exchange of knowledge, experience and visions. Making contacts is a top priority here.

Impact for your own career path

An important aspect that should accompany the participants in both formats is the impact on their own career path: Where do I see myself? Where do I want to go? The young women come together to talk about their successes and setbacks.
