Award for Director of Schaeffler’s Railway Sector Management

Germany's 25 most influential women engineers were selected from a total of 200 nominees by an independent, high-caliber jury on behalf of the German Association of Women Engineers e.V. (dib). Schaeffler manager Simone Purbs was chosen as one of these top engineers. The Schweinfurt-based graduate engineer heads Schaeffler Group Industrial's Railway Sector Management. The award was presented to her on November 5th at the Forscha 2011, a natural science and technology exhibition for children and adolescents held in Munich.
"I'm very happy and feel highly honored - also, and primarily, because the other 24 women are very interesting colleagues who hold impressive positions," Simone Purbs commented on her accolade. Only last week, Simone Purbs had opened the 12th Engineering Discovery Days, organized in cooperation between Schaeffler and Würzburg-Schweinfurt University of Applied Sciences. This event offers over 400 female students the opportunity to find out about the world of engineering during the fall vacation break, via a combination of theoretical and practical training. "I myself concluded vocational training as a mechanic prior to my university studies, learning skills such as welding, turning and so on. And I enjoyed this very much. I can only encourage all girls and young women to be ambitious and face the challenge of learning a technical profession. Why shouldn't they be just as proficient as their male schoolmates?" Simone Purbs asks.
