Despite having the same or better qualifications and grades, women often receive a lower salary as soon as they enter the job market. What is the reason for this, but above all: what can be done about it? Why are there still large salary differences between men and women? And is a career with family really compatible? What is the situation in business, science and research? Our open and inspiring exchange ranges from the quota of women in management positions, to salary, visibility and self-confidence.

Female students, young professionals and women with professional experience are welcome to participate in the round table discussion.
