On April 27th it’s that time again: 40 girls can get a taste of MINT jobs within the Offenbach city administration. MINT professions mean activities in the fields of mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology. The action day for schoolgirls from the 5th grade has been around for over 20 years with the aim of getting girls interested in training and jobs that are well paid and have so far been male-dominated.

The inspector candidates are again organizing a rally for the city administration this year. “The motto on this day is ‘The proof of the pudding is in the eating’. The girls should be really active,” explains Lina Oiadlizi, who organizes and accompanies Girls’ Day as one of the five inspector candidates. The process: After getting to know each other, the Girls’ Day rally starts, during which the girls visit various job stations. “Instead of listening to boring lectures, the girls can try things out and apply their knowledge and skills,” promises Oiadlizi. The girls get an insight into various offices of Offenbach’s city administration, including building supervision, the city school office, the office for real estate and economic development, the office for veterinary services and consumer protection and the office for cultural management. The rally will be rounded off with a snack, an exchange of experiences and a joint photo at the end of the eventful day. If you are interested, the girls can contact you through the official website or via the direct link by April 10 for a place in the rally.

Spend a day in the mayor’s office

Female role models are important – for this reason Mayoress Sabine Groß is once again offering the opportunity to look over her shoulder this year. Anyone interested in city politics can apply for one of the three places. On April 27, the mayor will take the girls to various stations to give them an insight into the multifaceted work of a mayor and city politician. “Women are also underrepresented in politics,” says Mayor Sabine Groß. “I want to encourage girls to take an interest in politics and maybe even get involved in Offenbach’s city politics.” For this year’s Girls’ Day, the mayor’s office is making three places available for schoolgirls who live in Offenbach. If the girls are interested, they can email the mayor directly at
