"Important progress has been made in recent years, but women are still affected by structural discrimination in the working world in 2022. In order to make progress here, the social debate must be further broadened and courageous decisions are needed from policymakers."

"Informal networks like "Mercatora" are an important place where relevant social challenges are discussed in an interdisciplinary way and where women advise and support each other in their professional advancement."
