For the first time, EPFL organizes an event for the occasion of International Women’s Day, focusing on the theme «Women’s Careers: What’s next after EPFL?». Co-organized by EPFL Alumni and the office of Equality, it aims to inspire and to share diverse career paths in the domains of research and education, industry, entrepreneurship, or finance.

The event will be opened by Leïla Ojjeh, Director of EPFL Alumni, and Pierre Vandergheynst, Vice-President of EPFL for Education.

This will be followed by the presentation of a McKinsey & Company study entitled «Why Women Matter» by Nina Probst, a McKinsey associate.

Editor-in-chief of the Bilan magazine, Myret Zaki, will then lead a round table discussion that will bring together several EPFL graduates to talk about their careers :
