Heidelberg International Professional Women's Forum

HIP Networking Brunch 2023

October 21, 2023 should be marked in your calendars! 

This is the date for this year’s iteration of the HIP annual networking event the so called “HIP Carousel”. In 2023 we will repeat the “Networking Brunch” as requested by many members. 

The annual Networking Event is part of the Women’s Economical days by the Ministry of Economy, Labor and Tourism in Baden in conjunction with the Heidelberg Department of Equal Opportunity.

At the Networking Brunch we will offer a broad program in different rooms that clearly focuses on the mission of HIP e.V.  We aim to bring together women from various international firms and backgrounds to exchange ideas, learn from one another’s experiences, and develop skills that will enhance both professional and personal success.

Time and location

21 October, 10:00 – 16:00h

Rooftop Lounge at SVAP Engineering Building
Marlene-Dietrich-Platz 1, Heidelberg / Campbell

We will establish a safe space to ensure:

  • Best networking matches
  • Sharing of experiences 
  • Improvement of skills
  • New creativity, ideas and inspiration
  • Fun over snacks and drinks

In the same venue as in 2022 you could either:

  • Participate in workshops on New Work, AI or Design Thinking
  • Go for a networking pitch to find the best discussions for yourself
  • Connect with others 
  • Explore in small groups
  • Talk to our special guests as Stefanie Jansen, Deputy Mayor of Heidelberg

Everyone can choose where their own interests lead them. Whether you are self-employed, starting or building your corporate career you will find the perfect match for discussions and exchange. 

You don’t know what to expect with a Networking Pitch?

This is a very easy opportunity for yourself to shine.

You don’t know what to expect with a Networking Pitch?

In very seconds and a few sentences, you introduce your person and the topic you are interested in. Let the audience know what discussions you are looking for, what keeps you up at night, which idea you want to build on, which question you want to have answered or which obstacles you want to solve.

Let your curiosity lead you to connect around your individual ideas. It doesn’t need a time-consuming preparation – go for it to find the best match for your idea.

Reserve your spot for a networking pitch today or contact us to get further explanations on it.

We offer an opened and welcoming, public format; the entrance is free of charge.

We offer an opened and public format with the main hall devoted to meeting and exploring in small groups over snacks and drinks, while a variety of workshops or round table discussions take place in an adjacent conference room. Everyone can choose where their own interests lead them.

Special Guest: Stefanie Jansen, Deputy Mayor of Heidelberg

What a pleasure to announce that the Major of Heidelberg, Stefanie Jansen – Deputy Mayor for Social Welfare, Education, Family and Equal Opportunities – will join us as well in this year Networking Brunch on October 21.

Stefanie Jansen is personally interested to meet with and talk to the women of the area to explore our needs and ideas. What an opportunity for us all to be able to come together and explore the future of Heidelberg, of HIP, and of your own projects as you develop and integrate your professional presence here in the region.
