Huisman participates in Girl’s Day 2021

The number of vacancies in the technical industry increases continuously. Nowadays, the number of women with a technical education is relatively low. At Huisman, we feel it is important that we inspire a new generation of women and make them enthusiastic about working in our industry. That is why we participate in Girl’s Day on 15 April, an initiative of VHTO Expertise Centre for gender diversity in beta, technology, and IT.

On this day, we will organise an online company visit for students aged 14 and 15 of the Helinium Highschool from Hellevoetsluis. During this event, we will proudly present our products. Elvira Teekman, Proposal Lead and Karen de Wit, Control Systems Engineer, will give an impression of what their workday looks like and will share why they have chosen to work in the technical industry. Besides all this, we will test the technical knowledge level of the girls. The winners of the quiz will be invited to a tour on the Huisman premises as soon as the circumstance allow for it. We are looking forward to meet you on 15 April!
