Lessons Learned in Female Leadership
The series “Lessons Learned in Academia” features successful people from academia, industry and alternative careers. WiNS Adlershof aims to present role models and contact people for questions regarding career paths, family options and much more.
In the next session Dr. Kathrin Goldammer, an expert in energy technology and management, will talk about her experiences as managing director of a research institute in Adlershof at the intersection of the energy sector and policy advice.
