International Women's Day

"Tell me where the women are - what to do for the visibility of innovative women in Germany?"

On the occasion of International Women's Day, the BMBF is organising the conference "Tell me where the women are - What to do for the visibility of innovative women in Germany?".

Women have always driven innovation, researched, written, philosophised and ushered in new epochs in the arts. However, these women were and are too little visible in society. In order to make women and their achievements better known, to convey positive role models and to introduce female expertise into public discourse, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has launched the funding guideline "Innovative Women in Focus".
The Federal Minister of Education and Research, Bettina Stark-Watzinger, will open the event. There will be an exchange on how innovative achievements by women can be made more visible. In addition, ideas will be developed on how to anchor corresponding measures structurally in universities, research institutions, professional societies, the media and companies.

International Women's Day was established in Copenhagen in 1910 and then celebrated for the first time in 1911. Since then on this day, attention is drawn to women's rights and gender equality worldwide. Topics are the social situation of women and their right to equal rights and equal participation - this is what women actively demand.

Let us remain in solidarity!

Under Pressure - Women care more?! Digital coffee break on International Women's Day


Tuesday, 08.03.2022, 10-11 a.m., online

Children, care, job, studies and more - How to find my way?

Both the current study situation and the consulting experience in the family office show that women still have to do the main part within care work. Our coffee break will not only focus on care work in the sense of caring for and raising children, caring for relatives and doing household chores. The worries that can arise from the responsibility for family and job or studies should also be considered. We would like to discuss this "mental load" with the participants.

After a short input from the family office team, we would like to give all participants the opportunity to exchange ideas, share experiences or simply listen in a confidential setting.

We ask for a short registration in advance by e-mail to:

The link to the digital coffee break (BigBlueButton) will be sent to all participants after registration.
