HANNOVER MESSE 2024 sees Deutsche Messe staging the first edition of a two-day career congress for women on 25 and 26 April, carrying on the tradition of the successful WomenPower series but with a new name: FEMWORX stands for career advancement for women in industry.
he FEMWORX career congress promises to become one of the most successful networking and discussion events for women in terms of diversity, career advancement, sustainability, and new working environments. With the decision to make the congress an even more integral part of HANNOVER MESSE and extend its duration to two days, Deutsche Messe is responding to the wishes of the exhibitors: “The topic of career is at the top of the agenda for many companies. Especially in industry, there is a need for more women from the STEM sector in leadership positions. In staging the FEMWORX congress, we are enhancing women’s career opportunities and providing a unique platform for knowledge exchange and networking,” says Dr. Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Managing Board of Deutsche Messe.
The FEMWORX program offers a broad spectrum of inspiring speakers. It consists of lectures, panel discussions and interactive workshops, as well as networking opportunities toward the advancement of women at all career levels. The accompanying exhibition provides the opportunity for attendees to gather information about career prospects, study programs, coaching and mentoring schemes, along with other employment-related topics and trends.
The main topics for the workshops, lectures and discussion rounds are Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Career and New Work. Finance, Health, and Gender Design are new topics on the agenda.
