With the WiDH Career Talks, we want to break the glass ceiling, empower women to make the right decisions, take on leading roles in their private and professional life and most importantly: break the myths. The ones about the straightforward CV or that you have to perfect and need to have completed a certain education to reach a goal. But the first and foremost step is: take matters into your own hands – always BE IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT!
