LGBT+ WOMEN SPECIAL EDITION

On a monthly basis, we organize Get-Together events, hosted by proud companies. This month, our LGBT+ Women Special Edition will take place at PROJECT A in Berlin!

In the age where the leading companies in the world are tech, we still struggle to spot women in leading and C level positions. Join on us March 7th as we discuss the motivations behind starting a business, health tech and being a leader in an industry that is predominantly male.

We wil have one solo talk and one panel:

  • Optimising on-site search ranking for a 2-sided marketplace for the LGBTQ+ community”, by Alexandra Deichsel.
  • Cracking health – if being a woman helps to succeed”, by Farina Schurzfeld and Dr. Sophie Chung
