The event helps female researchers in the early stages of their careers to build a professional network and find a mentor. It is primarily aimed at female undergraduates up to post-docs.

Presentations by female physicists with successful careers in and outside of research were followed by a panel discussion. At the same time, the event served to bring together mentors and mentees, who will meet several times throughout the year and plan the mentees' careers.
