We are hence cordially inviting you to join us for our virtual Networking Day which will focus on the German-American Trainee-Exchange. Together with German and U.S. participants, we will discuss how virtual tools can enhance the international exchange of apprentices and young professionals in times of travel restrictions, and which virtual formats could best supplement regular programs. We will also present information on our programs “GATE” and “Azubis go USA” and look forward to sharing best practices regarding professional training exchanges from both sides of the Atlantic. Last but not least, we will offer numerous opportunities to connect and network.
The event will start with welcoming addresses by Darion Akins, U.S. Consul General in Hamburg, and Dr. Nina Lemmens, Executive Board Member of the Joachim Herz Foundation.
Please register online (LINK). You will find the program on our website (www.joachim-herz-stiftund.de/gate) starting October. The conference languages are English and German.
