The WomenPower 2023 Career Congress marks the eleventh time that Deutsche Messe honors a female professional from the STEM sector. This person will be selected for having implemented innovative trends in the technical environment of a company through her commitment, ideas or performance. Besides this, the Young Engineering Award will be presented for the first time. This will go to a woman from the STEM field who is no more than 30 years old and who has made exceptional contributions.
Both calls are open to all companies and institutions from Germany and abroad. Only one nomination per award, per company is allowed. The deadline for applications is 13 February 2023.
The awards ceremony will take place on 21 April 2023 during the WomenPower Career Congress. Applications are free of charge. The Engineer Powerwoman 2023 and the nominees for the Young Engineering Award will be selected by an independent jury consisting of members of the Congress Advisory Board. This jury will initially determine three nominees from each of the competition areas. From these, the award winners will be named and announced at the WomenPower Career Congress.
