Female Smart House Professionals

“Future-Shape is committed to gender equality between men and women at work.”

The aim of the project was to initiate an active exchange on the topic of equal opportunities for women in business. This exchange particularly relates to the high-tech industry Smart House and its market development through the targeted employment of female professionals. Women with an affinity for technology are to exchange information and be kept up-to-date about the progress of the project. Furthermore, interested persons, associations, initiatives, etc. and companies participating in the project should become active in the group so that companies and female smart house professionals are brought together.

The project was initiated by isw Institut gGmbH and SmartHome Initiative Deutschland e. V. and is supported by BITKOM e. V…

Since May 2013, two employees of Future-Shape GmbH have been successfully qualified as Female Smart House Professionals.
