Many businesses, industrial companies and building trade companies use the occasion of national Girls’ Day to open up their facilities, shop floors, offices and laboratories to young women between the ages of 10 to 15 in order to give them a first-hand view of the working world.
The young women from school grades 5 to 10 have the chance of experiencing occupations that are stereotypically not regarded as feminine. Technical and technology-related fields are the focus.
Through direct discussions with employees and concrete practical tasks, the young women can broaden their experience and horizons.
For years HAVER & BOECKER has been offering 30 interested young women the opportunity to particpate in this one-day internship.
