The collaboration with Femtec enables P&G to promote female engineering and natural science talents during their studies. In addition, we see Femtec as an ideal partner for attracting and inspiring highly qualified graduates to our company.

“Since starting my career at P&G, I have been given more and more responsibility, after two years as a team leader and after four years as a department manager. The fact that “as a woman” I am the boss of 50 men is not discussed here. I particularly like how much trust is placed in me. Through good coaching, I learn every day and have the opportunity to help shape the future. I am particularly pleased about the cooperation between P&G and Femtec. I hope to meet more alumnae in the company soon. The fact that my company supports Femtec makes me proud, because what Femtec does is not important for women, but also for society.”
