“I have agreed to support the Forum because I believe that learning from other successes and failures is crucial for our growth. I also believe that in a man dominated industry we need to be a support and inspiration to one another. I’m looking forward to meeting and speaking with many women from different industries, with different backgrounds, and hearing their stories. As a female engineer working in the automotive industry, I do not meet a lot of female colleagues, and events like these are an amazing opportunity to raise the importance of empowering girls to follow their dreams and fight prejudice.
Events like these are a great opportunity to broaden our horizons, spread our knowledge, discover new things, and fill ourselves with positive energy.”
