A professional career is rarely straight forward, but often influenced by unexpected events. Especially women, which are still underrepresented in STEM, are subject to unforeseen events that can either inhibit or support their career choices. However, those events are not limited to women in STEM but very vast and include among others financial, political, societal, and climatic aspects. The lecture will be about how those events influence a career and how to create serendipity moments for you and your surrounding.
