Event: Women in STEM Round Table

18.01.23 | 18:00-21:00 | Language: English | Stammgelände, Vorhoelzer Forum, Arcisstraße, 21 | Host: TUM Staff Unit Diversity & Equal Opportunities | What it’s like to work in a profession where there are (yet) only a few of you. | Let yourself be inspired and strengthened by female role models from the STEM sector. They will also answer your personal questions about your (possible) career path.

What it's about and what you get out of it

For our Women in STEM Round Table, we have invited female role models who work in various professions and different industries – and who all studied in STEM fields. They will give you insights into the following questions:

  • What is it like to oftentimes being one of the few women or even the only woman in the room?
  • What are ways to stay resilient in a male-dominated environment?
  • How do I navigate a STEM career path?
  • How do I combine my job with my family (relationship, caring for children or elderly)?
  • What are the biggest challenges in my day-to-day work life?
  • What are things I wish I had known when I was a student?

Your bonus: The role models will take time to answer your personal questions in a Q&A session.

Invited are all (those who identify as) female bachelor and master students at the TUM as well as STEM-interested school girls.


We'll show you: You're not alone!

For a woman to decide for a STEM degree or career might sound challenging to some and it might be self-evident to others – it can definitely be rewarding! However, many women might feel as if there aren’t that many other women taking that road as the numbers of women in STEM show.

But: These women are not alone and you are not alone! You will meet strong and inspiring women on our panel who have built successful careers with their STEM studies.
