DANWISE is a non-profit organization that represents women from academia, industry, and business that span the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM), and Humanity areas. DANWISE’s main vision is to create change that reduces the gender gap in the STEMM and humanities areas. These changes will be made through initiatives and programs that aim to: i.) increase awareness of gender imbalance in STEMM areas, ii.) improve hiring of women in higher academic and industry positions, and iii.) bring forth new policies that improve gender diversity at the Universities and in the industry.
Odense Startup Weekend
In the tradition of the startup weekend powered by Google for Entrepreneurs and in cooperation with TechStars, I joined the organization team of the Odense Startup Weekend. Within 54 hours developers, designers, business or entrepreneurial persons have the opportunity to launch their idea and to create a viable business model concept. As preparation for the weekend, I implemented online marketing campaigns to attract participants and organized with the team the location setting, materials, and meals for the participants. Throughout the weekend we facilitated several teams by developing their ideas and pitching them in front of the jury on Sunday.
Berlin Geekettes Mentorship Program 2015
The Mentorship Program is a five-month program that focuses on the professional and personal development of female professionals. Our goal is to connect you with inspiring women who lend their support while you are advancing your career, setting goals, and expanding your skills. Each month will center on a certain aspect of a young professional’s life. From networking and personal branding all the way to stress management, the themes aim to address the key challenges our program participants face in their everyday working lives.
I supported the event and program planning for the program.
