"My task as women's representative at FIM is to support, network and strengthen women at our faculty. In addition, it is particularly important to me to show female students outside the university that computer science and mathematics are diverse fields of work and research and that you can find inspiring women there," says Isabella Graßl ( Women's Representative of the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics).
For Shekoufeh Neisarian, deputy women's representative of the FIM, her office means above all to work for equal opportunities: "As women's representative of the FIM, I have the opportunity to make a difference and to promote gender equality. This position is very important as it allows me to actively participate in decision-making processes and shape policies that take into account the specific needs and concerns of women. Together, we can create an inclusive and supportive environment for all."
"For me, being a women's representative is first and foremost aboutpreventing problems before they arise and emphasizing gender equality and diversity through communication activities," says Alizée Bertrand, second deputy women's representative at FIM. She also stresses that institutional structures play a significant role in gender equality: "It's important to create a space for dialogue and support on the one hand, and to take action at the institutional level to accompany women in STEM and offer them fair opportunities on the other."
