Holoplot hosts Girls Day to inspire next generation of female tech leaders

School girls between the ages of 10 and 16 were invited to the company's HQ in Berlin to get hands-on with industry tech

Pro audio specialist Holoplot invited 22 school girls aged 10-16 to its HQ in Berlin at the end of April to spend the day with its team as part of Girls Day; an initiative that encourages girls to consider careers in the tech industry. The venture is funded and supported by the responsible federal ministries, the Federal Employment Agency, social partners and representatives from the federal states, science, practice and business in Germany.

Participants received hands-on experience with software engineering and web development, user experience and user interface design, and design and coding exercises. “Tech is genderless, yet this industry is still heavily imbalanced, with women working in pro audio far outnumbered by men,” said Mailin Paashaus, Holoplot’s head of people and culture. “Initiatives like Girls Day are a great way to share our excitement about what we do here at Holoplot, and show participants that science and software is for everyone. We are delighted the girls were as passionate about the day as we were, and we hope we see many of them pursuing tech careers in the future.”

The company states that it was formed out of the belief that the face of audio can be radically transformed, not just through technology and innovation, but in shifting the prevailing gender disparity in the industry overall. By championing Girls Day, Holoplot said it “hopes to have helped inspire the next generation of females to join this great industry and strive for a career in tech.”
