More Girls in STEM

The goal of this is cooperation is to create an example for girls in their professional and personal development. We want this platform to grow and develop with women: their experiences, perspectives and opinions are crucial for building a community in which inspiration, mutual support and exchange of ideas will allow new standards to be set.

The Mercedes-Benz brand is devoted to strengthening the position of women in modern world. Since 2015,  She's Mercedes Platform was presented as a place where women can connect, share ideas, experiences and learn from each other. She's Mercedes is committed to inspiring, connecting and empowering women to show the best of themselves. The brand symbol is Berta Benz. She was not just Karlo Benz's wife and mother of his children, she was also an inspiration and business partner: as the first person to drive remotely, Berta confirmed the concept of the car, laying the foundations for the whole new industry and opening the way for a story about Mercedes-Benz success.

Mercedes-Benz has launched the She's Mercedes initiative to address women directly and draw their attention to their brand. Today, women in more than 60 countries can share their opinions within online communities and on "networking" evenings, where they can find inspiration from the Mercedes-Benz world and brand activities.
