… On “Learning”

 Think in terms of standing leg (Standbein) and free leg (Spielbein). Your standing leg is your established skill set applied in a familiar setting. Use your free leg to experiment and try applying your skills in a new and different context.

… On “Challenges”

Accept challenges – if it doesn’t work out, you can always go “back to start”, adjust and try again

… On “Chances”

 Women have so many chances and opportunities compared to previous generations or even today to women in other countries. Let’s be aware of this privilege and take those chances.

… On “Being a Women of Color in Germany”

 It differentiates you; use this to your advantage.

… On “Mentoring”

 Build a network of sparring partners and mentors for yourself. And give back – be the mentor you needed when you were younger.

… On “Career Planning”

 Plan two steps ahead; then find or create one of the missing links to get there.
