This year's Girls' Day, in which STW traditionally participates, took place on April 28. On Girls' Day, interested school students can find out about careers, training and study opportunities in research, information technology, technology and science. At the electronics manufacturer STW, the focus was primarily on electronics and production related training. For example, the participants learned about the apprenticeship paths for electronics technicians for devices & systems, micro or production technologists and information technology specialists.
Of course, the focus was also on the special benefits of training at STW, such as intensive team building, after work activities and the company's various sports and music groups.
For many years, STW has given interested girls the opportunity to spend a day at the Am Bärenwald production site to get a taste of everyday training. The training manager at STW, Anna Maria Rohr, was very positive about this year's Girl's Day: "This year, 11 girls from all age groups took part, from those new to high school through to those about to graduate. This showed us that the opportunities for a technical career at STW are very interesting for girls and not at all just 'for the boys'." At STW currently, 11 young women are engaged in vocational training, which means nearly 30% percent of the young people currently working towards a technical profession.
Girls' Day is aimed at school pupils in grades 5 and above and aims to support a stereotype-free career choice. The campaign day is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs.
