At re:publica 2023 our speakers Nakeema Stefflbauer (Division Director at ERGO Technology & Services and Founder and CEO of FrauenLoop gUG) and Daria Suvorova (Founder and Host of WAA Podcast) discussed on stage how to make women financially independent and protect them from poverty in post-retirement years. The recorded session is now available on YouTube.
According to the Gender Pension Gap Report of the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, women receive on average almost 60 percent less pension than men – in retirement they often lack several hundred euros.
Nakeema Stefflbauer's motivation for founding “FrauenLoop” is women's financial inclusion and independence. She qualifies women for in-demand technical jobs in IT as an alternative to low-paying roles in industries that are frequently dominated by women. Among FrauenLoop's graduates are many women with a migration background, working mothers, asylum-holders and women who never previously considered working in IT.
