Getting Involved

 

Over 700 Women Making a Difference

We are a community of +700 female students and alumni from the European Institute of Innovation & Technology. We follow a cross-disciplinary approach and welcome all members from the EIT community —students, alumni, entrepreneurs, staff and partners— to join us. We provide our members with platforms (LinkedIn, Facebook)  to share their experiences, exchange ideas and opportunities, and share how to become a better version of themselves.

Join also the conversations happening in Slack!

 

Our community

Would you like to lend a helping hand?

We aim to provide training on topics valuable to develop the mindset for females to become the next generation of female leaders.

  • Exchanges with leading companies seeking female talent in students and alumni from the EIT programs and Knowledge Innovation Communities
  • Workshops on digital and technical skills in high demand, on negotiating your worth, on learning how to invest, etc
  • Exchanges with entrepreneurs to share their journey, how they overcame their struggles, how to set a company, how to fund it, etc

We are on the lookout for volunteers, speakers, and partners to collaborate with us to organise events, workshops, and masterclasses.

After I heard about Women@EIT, I could not wait to dive into all it has to offer to the EIT through boosting females’ voices. The more I knew about the community, the more I wanted to be part of it. Early 2020, I started my collaboration connecting Women@EIT with EIT Raw Materials and collaborate in the organisation of events. I do firmly believe that Women@EIT is leading EIT women to become a better version of themselves!

The speech given by Maria Kanov at the EIT Alumni CONNECT event was so inspiring that I just had to be part of this community that matches perfectly my ideas about women entrepreneurs and leaders. Surely enough I got engaged with Women@EIT to create a series of webinars about Leadership and it has been an amazing experience! This community is a great support for all the women in the EIT community, bringing us all together to shape a better future.
