We were part of the GIRLS’ DAY TYROL last week and welcomed 2 young women to introduce them to the profession mechanical engineer and the industry in general.
After a guided tour through the various departments in the company with the managing director, the production manager showed the girls the machines and the individual areas of responsibility. The girls were then allowed to try bending, grinding and cutting themselves. Lots of fun and loughs during this time. In order to give the girls an overview of the learning effort and an assessment of their current level of knowledge, a small math quiz was then carried out that made their heads spin. All in all a very successful and nice day. We hope to be part of the GIRLS’ DAY TIROL again next year!
GIRLS’ DAY is an offer for girls and young women who are about to choose a career. It brings schoolgirls closer to the world of work and draws their attention to the wide range of career opportunities. Since girls and women are still very underrepresented in apprenticeships and academic studies in mathematics, IT, natural sciences and technology (MINT) and crafts. Which is also noticeable in the companies, because they are increasingly lacking qualified young people in these areas. GIRLS’ DAY is intended to encourage girls to turn to professions in which the proportion of women has so far been low. Companies and educational institutions therefore open their doors on GIRLS’ DAY and give girls an insight into technical, manual and scientific careers. These future professions offer much higher income and career opportunities and thus more chances and development opportunities.
