Coura­geous role mod­els inspire peo­ple. That is why ACADEMIA SUPERIOR and Frauen im Trend launched the wom­en4­fu­ture-talks. Two Upper Aus­tri­an MUT­macherin­nen, who are pio­neers in their fields, were brought in front of the cur­tain. „We want to build aware­ness of what women in Upper Aus­tria can achieve if they only have the con­fi­dence to do it”, said chair­woman LH-Stv. Mag. Chris­tine Haberlander.

Mag. Ingrid Trauner man­aged the Trauner Ver­lag in Linz for years. She talked about her expe­ri­ence as man­ag­er of a family-company.

Pro­fes­sor Mag. Rein­hilde Spiek­er­mann has been com­mit­ted to peace and envi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion since her youth. She gave insights into her way of life and work as teacher.

In a live­ly and con­tro­ver­sial dis­cus­sion with the more than 30 inter­est­ed guests, aspects of sus­tain­abil­i­ty, edu­ca­tion, per­son­al respon­si­bil­i­ty, the role of par­ents and sus­tain­abil­i­ty as a polit­i­cal man­date were discussed.
