Girls' and Boys' Day 2023:
RKW opens doors for school students
On April 27, the RKW sites in Michelstadt and Echte took part in the Girls' and Boys' Day, a nationwide Future Day (“Zukunftstag”), that gives school students the opportunity to get a taste of occupational fields that are traditionally dominated by women or men.
The participants were offered a varied program. Besides a guided tour through the production sites and an introduction to the products, they also gained insights into various professions and departments at RKW. For example, the boys and girls were able to get hands-on experience in Maintenance and Quality assurance. They were supported by our apprentices. In addition, direct dialog with colleagues at the sites was also possible to ask questions and learn more about RKW.
The schoolchildren were excited about the opportunity to learn about the working world at RKW and discover their own skills and interests. “We are very happy that we were able to offer them this experience and hope that the hands-on approach gave them a better understanding of the career opportunities at RKW," emphasizes Dirk Röske, Head of HR Region Germany.
"We believe it is important to give young people the opportunity to explore different professions at an early age. We hope that this experience has helped the participants to better understand and develop their interests and skills," says Melanie Schmitt, Manager HR from our Michelstadt site.
“We would like to thank all the students who participated in the Girls' and Boys' Day at RKW. We hope that this day was as enriching for you as it was for us. It was great to see how engaged you were and how you could try out your skills and interests in practice. We wish you all the best for your further school years and your career and hope that we may meet again in the future as colleagues at RKW. Thank you for your participation and your enthusiasm! We hope that many students will also take advantage of the opportunity to get to know our working world next year and that we will be able to make a contribution to career orientation and promotion in the future," adds Dirk Röske in conclusion.
