network advanced female scientist@tu

The president, Professor Angela Ittel, invites all female professors at TU Braunschweig to a network meeting once a semester.

As at many (technical) universities, women are less represented in leadership positions at the TU Braunschweig. Currently, 26% of professorships are held by women. A constructive way to strengthen exchange and visibility and mutual support is the formation of networks. Together with the Central Equal Opportunity Officer Ulrike Wrobel, current topics are addressed in the meetings, followed by the opportunity for interdisciplinary exchange and networking.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Angela Ittel and Ulrike Wrobel at any time (c/o
