The IAHR task force on Strengthening Diversity and Gender Equity will host its 4th online coffee chat for young professionals on the range of career paths: industry versus academia on the International Women’s Day on 8 March, 2022, from 4-5 pm CET. This time, we will have four panelists from industry and academia. 

  • Tanja Janisch-Breuer, Head of the Hydro Power Plant Pool Kaprun-Salzach at VERBUND Hydro Power GmbH in Austria, and María Pedro Monzonis, Head of I+D+i Agua Potable at Global Omnium in Spain, will provide insights on their career in industry.

  • Prof. Ioana Popescu, Associate Professor at IHE Delft in The Netherlands, and Prof. Blair Johnson, Assistant Professor at University of Texas at Austin in the US, will share their experiences from academia.

The coffee chat will start with a short introduction by the panelists, followed by a Q&A moderated by Isabella Schalko from ETH Zurich.

Please send 2-3 questions in advance, so they can be included in the moderated discussion. There will also be an opportunity to ask additional questions in a chat box.

You can sign up here until 2 March, 2022!
