Through our core Femtec Career-Building Program, partner companies and universities get to know many STEM talents. This offers an extraordinary enrichment for both sides, as we have seen time and again. In addition, we offer tailor-made and demand-oriented programs for organisations. With the following we would like to give you an insight into some examples of best practice.
Recommendations and field reports from business and science – from our partner companies and universities.

Since its inception, many talented women have been through Femtec’s programs and many remain loyal alumnae of the network. Here are testimonials from current and former scholars:
"The Femtec Network is a unique opportunity to get to know great STEM women and to exchange ideas on exciting topics away from clichés."
"I can say that I owe a large part of what I have achieved to Femtec and the Alumnae Association."
"The program is definitely an enrichment and you learn a lot about yourself, dealing with others and the companies."
"My experience of the network is that it is open, incredibly supportive, invigorating, inspiring, motivating... and always there for you."
"The role of women should be freely selectable and not pre-defined."
"The Femtec Network is a network that offers security, in which you can always find an answer for everything, and you will always be supported."
Dr. Angela Heykamp
"The best thing about Femtec to this day is the Femtec spirit that I find at every event. There is immediately this concentrated energy, creativity and inspiration in the room when Femtec women meet. I take new ideas and contacts with me from every event."
Dr. Franka Schröder
"For me, the network is the place to go when I need input from other women who have been in the same or in similar situations before. I love to hear about other women's experiences and to include those experiences in my decision."
"I learned a lot about myself by participating in the program. The program complements the technical education at the university very well and excellently prepares me for my career entry as an engineer."
