Dr. Kathrin Rüschenschmidt is Engineer Powerwoman

This year, Dr. Kathrin Rüschenschmidt was named Engineer Powerwoman at WomenPower during HANNOVER MESSE Digital Edition. She accepted the award following laudatory speeches by Dorothea Bär, Minister of State in the Federal Chancellery and Federal Government Commissioner for Digitalization, and Angela Josephs, Vice Chair of the WomenPower Congress Advisory Board and Director Corporate Communications at Phoenix Contact.

The winner of the Engineer Powerwoman Award can expect a media-effective award ceremony during the opening of the WomenPower Career Congress on April 16, 2021, as well as an attractive PR package for maximum visibility worth EUR 5,000.

Mrs. Elke Büdenbender, patron of the initiative Klischeefrei and wife of the German President, has taken over the patronage of the Engineer Powerwoman Award for the second time. With the renewed assumption of the patronage Elke Büdenbender wants to continue to draw attention to existing gender stereotypes in the choice of profession and to fight these."
