Women in Engineering and Technology 3

After two very successful iterations of our annual Women in Engineering and Technology workshops, LC Zurich will keep going – the third time’s the charm, right? From the 30th of October to the 6th of November 2016, you have the chance to experience Zurich and the Swiss mountains in a way you will never forget. During our workshop, you will get to know and love this small country of breathtaking mountains, refreshing lakes, luscious chocolate and delicious cheese.

The workshop will be addressing a variety of topics concerning women working and studying in engineering and related fields, with a particular focus on developing leadership skills, confronting the leaky pipeline issue as well as gender stereotyping in engineering. The local and international participants will take part in a full-blown program and get an overview of career prospects in academia, the industry as well as entrepreneurship. In addition, you will get the chance to visit large engineering companies like Zühlke or the IBM Research Laboratory to meet up and talk with successful female engineers.
