The Frauenwirtschaftstage are a nationwide campaign for equality to support the equal participation of women in working life and in the economy. For this reason, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing Construction organizes the Frauenwirtschaftstage every year. This year’s main theme is “Female Leadership – Female Bosses Wanted!” From October 14 to 17, 2020, regional workshops, congresses, lectures and consultations will be offered by numerous local organizers for companies and interested parties. The focus will be on the topics of female entrepreneurs, start-ups and business succession, networking and cooperation, women on their way to management positions, women re-entering the workforce and the compatibility of work and family life. The event “Female Leadership in Cyber Valley” is part of this event series.
