For the grand finale of our annual Women's STEM Award, we usually meet all the winners in person. This year the award ceremony has to be virtual again, but we take the chance and invite all STEM enthusiasts to our virtual award ceremony under the motto „Innovation for a digital world – Insights & Awards“.

Curious? Please join us.

Here you can register. The dial-in data will then be sent to you. We are looking forward to 60 exciting minutes with insights, awards and glamour!


Seven exceptional talents will receive the Women's MINT Award 2021. You will find out what exactly is behind this at this virtual award ceremony with great speakers and experts from the jury.

Innovations – first-hand insights 

Who has the opportunity to stroll virtually through the Telekom Design Gallery and gain an insight into the latest trends and technologies together with moderator Tijen Onaran , founder of the "Global Digital Women " (GDW) network community? In fact, everyone who wants to dial in on June 11th, 2021 at 12:00 noon (Central European Summer Time) and join us on our journey through the T-Gallery.

What topics are young female scientists researching?

That's what this year's Women's STEM Awards are all about. International female STEM students whose final theses were submitted in the strategic growth areas of artificial intelligence, cloud, cyber security, the Internet of Things or networks of the future will be honored. It will be exciting to see which innovations make it to the top. Who will be on the podium at the end of the day, or who will be virtually connected in a live Talk. Ultimately, we want to use the award to support young women in their STEM subjects and present them to a broad public, thereby motivating other young women to study STEM or pursue a career in the digital environment. Board member for Technology & Innovation, Claudia Nemat, supports the award as patron and will once again personally give the laudatory speech to the overall winner.

Special Acknowledgement Prize 

All humans are equal and enjoy equal rights, the universal Human Rights proclaim. But is this reality? In fact, we all live under specific national and personal circumstances. For this reason, we have decided to award a special prize in addition for one thesis that has achieved great scientific results under difficult conditions. A recognition to support young women in emerging or developing countries.
