Rising Stars KTH 2019


Rising Stars at KTH is a workshop for women PhD students from KTH. This first edition was held April 26 – 27, 2019 at the Djurönäset Conference Hotel, in the Stockholm archipelago. The workshop consists of seminars, group discussions, social activities, and is a great opportunity to network and get to know other women PhD students from KTH. This year’s topic is “Career building: mission, leadership, presence and relational intelligence” and we had the pleasure of hosting two great speakers: Annelène Decaux and Jennifer Krahn.
