Get to know the FOKUS-network for female students!
The female student network of the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS was founded in the 2022 summer semester. It is open to STEM students from all universities. We would like to offer all female students the opportunity to establish a personal network with other female students, FOKUS scientists and women with professional experience through regular events.
At the network meetings, we inform you about our experiences as women in science, and what we have learned. You have the opportunity to ask questions about FOKUS research topics and the everyday work of female scientists. You will find out what opportunities we offer you as an employer, about the range of bachelor's and master's theses and internships, and how you can apply to us.
Would you like to take part in our network meeting and network with other STEM women?
The next network meeting will take place in spring 2024. Further information will follow soon.
FLINTA stands for Female, Lesbian, Intersex, Trans, Agender, and further gender identities that experience marginalization and discrimination under a patriarchal society. At all our network meetings it is important to us to offer an inclusive protected space for underrepresented and disadvantaged groups. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has been a member of the Diversity Charter since 2011. This also includes gender equality and gender diversity. The network is therefore expressly open to all FLINTA* people!
