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 FEMWORX 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 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 FEMWORX 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.
