Networking is the core business of Messe München: At our trade fairs we connect people from business, science and politics and showcase global innovations.

We connect decision-makers today for the world of tomorrow

Based on this conviction, Frauen-Verbinden was created as an exclusive network—personally managed by Dr Susanne Hennigers, Director Corporate Partnerships & Platform Growth, and Jennifer Harder, Executive Director Human Resources—for women in leadership positions in business, politics, science, media and culture. Frauen-Verbinden offers top executives a platform for cross-industry dialogue on future topics with the aim of strengthening each other. The goal: a more diverse, sustainable and future-proof business world.

After all, despite numerous advances, there are still too few networks in which women in management positions can discuss and support each other on an equal footing across different sectors.

Our network empowers women for a more diverse business world

Frauen-Verbinden was founded in autumn 2015. Since 2019, there have been regular events in Munich and also in Hamburg and Berlin. With Berlin, so that we are closer to the pulse of politics and with the media location Hamburg for a further interdisciplinary and cross-industry exchange.

In early 2024, Frauen-Verbinden underwent a refresh and expanded its members' benefits. In addition to the established cross-industry exchange opportunities, the network now also offers support for members' professional and personal development as well as a community platform.

The initiative focuses on personal contact, direct dialogue, learning from each other and mutual empowerment. The closed section of the Frauen-Verbinden website provides further contact opportunities.
