Stuttgart. Today, 30 schoolgirls aged between 13 and 15 experienced at first hand how attractive technical professions in the automotive industry can be for women. As a part of the nationwide “Girls Day”, they visited
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart. In the sports car manufacturer’s training workshop, the girls became acquainted with the jobs of mechatronics technician, vehicle painter, vehicle interior designer, and construction/industrial mechanic. Under the guidance of Porsche training supervisors, the participants gained their first practical experience of engine assembly, changing brake pads, and spray-painting. At the end of the working day, every pupil was able to bring home a product she had manufactured herself – either a metal and leather key-ring or an airbrush picture.
„Women are just as successful in the technical professions as their male colleagues. For years now, Porsche has always had great expectations of the female members of the younger generation – and we like to get to know them as soon as possible”, says Dieter Esser, head of vocational training at Porsche. By its participation in “Girls Day” and by other activities,the enterprise supports initiatives that foster talent in technically-oriented subjects while pupils are still at school.
