What is RISK Women in Business

RISK Women in Business is a Female Empowerment Initiative founded by the RISK student group in early 2024. The initiative aims to create a supportive network of experienced women in business and female students from all disciplines at KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) who inspire, promote, and support each other.

Our vision is to establish an environment where female students from a technically-focused university come together to gain insights and support in the business field. Therefore, through our events, we aim to provide a platform for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and resources.


With our InspireHer Keynote Series, we invite female professionals from various sectors of the business world every month to provide KIT students with insights into the lives of successful women. We intentionally keep this event open to all students, as we believe that students from all backgrounds can benefit from the experiences of successful women. If you are a female professional interested in talking about your life and experiences at KIT, please get in touch with us via the contact form

Starting in the winter semester of 2024/25, we plan to launch our EmpowerHer Mentorship Program. The exact details are still in the planning phase, and the application process for the program is expected to begin in September 2024.
