Engineer Powerwoman 2023

Dr. Christina Franke

This year, Dr. Christina Franke was named Engineer Powerwoman at WomenPower during HANNOVER MESSE. The award was presented by the chairwoman of the jury, Prof. Barbara Schwarze, Kompetenzzentrum Technik-Diversity-Chancengleichheit, Bielefeld.

“The WomenPower Congress Advisory Board is thrilled at the outstanding quality of the proposals from companies and research institutions for the Engineer Powerwoman 2023 award,” she declared. “The selection of the winner, Dr. Christina Franke, from three highly interesting nominated experts impressively demonstrates the potential of women working in technically-oriented companies. The award is intended to honor the winner and encourage her on her path, as well as to encourage companies to make significantly more women visible in their technical careers.”

Lisa Ihde , Young Engineering Award 2023

The winner was announced during the opening of the WomenPower Career Congress on 21 April in Hannover. Prof. Barbara Schwarze, in her role as chairwoman of the WomenPower Jury, presented the Young Engineering Award to Lisa Ihde.

The jury, comprised of the members of the WomenPower Congress Advisory Board, had nominated three young women for this new award. In the end, Lisa Ihde, from the Hasso Plattner Institute Potsdam, triumphed. She is a web designer, game designer, software engineer and author.

As co-author, she was instrumental in writing the book "Gamedesign für Dummies Junior". Like the IT industry in general, the gaming industry is heavily male-dominated. This makes it all the more important for women in the industry to get involved to a greater extent, in order to change the image of women in digital games. With her commitment, Lisa is a role model for all young women who decide to pursue a career in IT or game design, and who need strong role models for these career choices.

New: Young Engineering Award

You know a young female scientist aged 30 or under who is doing exceptional work in her field or is committed to going way beyond the call of duty. Then we want to meet this great woman. For 20 years, WomenPower has been one of the most successful networking and discussion events for women leaders in STEM fields, and it's time that we, too, become more diverse and intentionally reach out more to young women. That's why we are presenting the "Young Engineering Award" for the first time this year.

The “Engineer Powerwoman 2023” will be honored at the WomenPower congress on April 21, 2023. The award winner will receive a media appearance within the framework of the WomenPower congress on April 21, 2023, as well as an attractive PR package and exclusively 2 tickets for the Networking Night and the WomenPower Career Congress 2024.
