„Femtec on Tour“ in Zurich!
What happens when manager issues become female manager issues? How can leadership influence cultural change in companies and universities? What challenges are to be expected? These and further gripping questions were addressed at the event “Femtec on Tour” on November 3 at our partner university, ETH Zurich.
Initially, Yannick Staubli from the Department of Gender Equality of the Canton Zurich welcomed the participants. Going on, Renate Lohmann, Managing Director of Femtec.GmbH, moderated the panel discussion with Prof. Dr. Renate Schubert, Professor for National Economics and Delegate of ETH’s President for Equal Opportunities, and Irina Leutwyler, General Manager Bushings ABB Switzerland.
Therefore, the questions concerning diversity and female leadership could be answered by two experienced practitioners representing the company and university point of view. These personal insights offered a high level of authenticity which was visibly welcomed by the audience, participating actively by asking many questions. So, an animated exchange emerged, leading to valuable advice for the ambitious students and doctoral candidates. We thank all participants for this additional successful round of our format “Femtec on Tour” and are already looking forward to the next run!
