Ladies Night 2021
A varied program and interested participants - the Ladies Night was a complete success.
The Ladies Night for Women in Engineering Sciences takes place every spring. The aim is to support young female academics on their career path. The Ladies Night took place for the ninth time - this time online due to the current pandemic. The OvGU organizes this event in cooperation with the MPI Magdeburg and the Fraunhofer Institute Magdeburg.
This year, from April 19th to 23rd, 2021, interested parties and students were able to deal with exciting topics in lectures, workshops and seminars: "How do I communicate in science?", "Why is networking important?" and who are possible employers?
In addition, there were exciting lectures by women who reported on their careers and their experiences. Dr. Katja Bettenbrock, from the MPI, was one of the speakers.
The Ladies Night always offers the opportunity to find out about possible career paths and to exchange ideas with others in an informal setting. For this reason, the IMPRS also organized a “Get together with doctoral researchers”. Students from various fields reported on their experiences during their doctorate. In addition, they also talked about the various doctoral programs at OvGU.
Especially for Bachelor and Master students who are considering doing a doctorate, this was an excellent opportunity to ask all questions and get valuable tips. The event was well attended and will definitely take place again next year.
We are already looking forward to next year and the 10th Ladies Night for Women in Engineering Sciences.
