The Girls’ Day is the biggest career orientation project for girls worldwide. The aim of this campaign is to expand the range of career choices of women and to promote diversity in the workplace.

Last year, girls and non-binary students from years 7 and 8 visited companies and universities and accompanied women working in a STEM field or in a leadership position.

In addition to the on-site activities, Girls’ Day offered a virtual program this year. Schools tuned in from their classroom. The virtual program included a coding workshop followed by presentations by women in STEM as well as information on studying in Germany.
