Network, Be a Role Model, and Work Together - MES Supports Femtec.Alumnae e.V.
Expanding the network to strengthen a work culture based on equality
Since its founding in 2006, Berlin-based software company Model Engineering Solutions GmbH (MES) has been committed to having a high number of female developers and a strong level of diversity in its software development teams. Diversity, a family-friendly atmosphere, work-life balance, and equality are part of the company’s guiding principles. By sponsoring the Femtec.Alumnae e.V. gala event on September 1, 2018, in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), MES is supporting the expansion and advancement of this network for women working in STEM.
Femtec.Alumnae e.V. to celebrate 10 years with a gala event
On September 1, 2018, from 4 p.m., the Femtec.Alumnae e.V. network will celebrate its 10-year anniversary in the Festsaal at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). Over 100 highly qualified women who work in STEM and are part of the Femtec.Alumnae e.V. network are expected to attend.
Femtec.Alumnae e.V. and MES
MES supports Femtec.Alumnae e.V.’s goal of encouraging more young women to study a science or technical discipline and bring about a complete, society-wide rethinking of work structures that leads to individual and responsible design of professional and private environments.
Dr. Heiko Dörr, MES CEO, states:
„Gender equality and diversity are important for our society's development. These values must be lived at the company level; MES is committed to doing this. As part of this, we proactively work to create a family-friendly environment and opportunities for professional development while also increasing the number of female developers in our teams. To this end, working with Femtec.Alumnae e.V. to expand our network and support young women in studying and beginning their career in STEM is a natural fit for us.“
