On Last week on Thursday 15th July, AiSight opened its office doors to the public after a very long time, to host an event organized together with Girls in Tech Berlin, a global non-profit organization focused on the engagement, education, and empowerment of women in technology.
What you missed on the first GiTxAiSight event
We hosted over 50 young women who were both experienced professionals as well as young students that are considering their career in tech. Everybody was absolutely thrilled to meet so many talented individuals - some of them aerospace, mechanical, software engineers, data scientists, PhDs, AI experts, but also women working on the business side of tech. And even a licensed commercial pilot (!). The girls arriving at the event were welcomed by the AiSight women (Frances Völkel, HR and Event Manager, Ouafa Hachem, Data Scientist, Cecilia Proietti, Marketing Manager, and Marcela Mogilska, BizDev Manager, who is part of Girls in Tech and setup the event) with food and drinks. Then the event proceeded with a presentation by the GiT team (Heidi Gaudet, Alessia Cheng, Karin Feistel and Emilija Kieraite), who introduced Girls in Tech Berlin to the audience, and the greetings of Matthias Auf der Mauer, co-Founder and CEO of AiSight, who presented the company. We spent the rest of the evening talking about the technology that AiSight is developing, getting to know our guests, and even talking about career opportunities at AiSight with some of them. In fact, AiSight is currently hiring for many different roles and having many talented individuals around the office was also a great chance to invite them to apply.
Having in mind the fact that the gender gap in tech companies is still significant, it was very refreshing to see so much interest, especially among young students.
"It was an honor to host such an inspiring event with so many incredibly talented people. We at AiSight strongly believe that the low numbers of women working in the tech industry is a huge issue and the industry could benefit from a change. GiT is a great and effective initiative to tackle this issue, which is why we are more than happy to support it." - Matthias Auf der Mauer, Co-founder and CEO of AiSight
