Dear EESTECers,

after two very successful iterations of our annual Women in Engineering workshops LC Zurich will keep going - the third time's the charm, right? From 30th of October till 6th of November you have the chance to experience Zurich and the Swiss mountains in a way you will never forget. During our workshop you will get to know and love this small country of breathtaking mountains, refreshing lakes, luscious chocolate and delicious cheese.

The workshop will be addressing a variety of topics concerning women working and studying in engineering and related fields, with a particular focus on developing leadership skills, confronting the leaky pipeline issue as well as gender stereotyping in engineering. The local and international participants will take part in a full-blown program and get an overview of career prospects in academia, industry as well as entrepreneurship. In addition, you will get the chance to visit large engineering companies like Zühlke or the IBM Research Laboratory to meet up and talk with successful female engineers.

Naturally LC Zurich won’t let you down after the academical part. You can expect a city rally unlike you have ever experienced before, an old EESTEC classic, the international night, the best pre- and after-parties in the tremendous LC Zurich bunker and visits to the sights of the city and of course, considering the date, a spooky Halloween party.

But this is only when the real fun begins – our legendary IMW. Starting on Thursday with our crazy tram party you will enjoy a weekend in the alps with stunning views of the mountains and lakes.

If all this sounds too good to be true, apply now and let us change your mind! If you cannot spare the time for a whole week, you might also consider just joining the IMW for the best weekend of your lives. If you apply for the workshop, you do not have to additionally apply to the IMW, you are enlisted automatically. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask: wscontact16[at]eestec.ethz.ch

See you in Zurich!
