As an ambassador at Teknikkvinnor, Marina wants to create meetups and relations between women to allow for more to develop, learn, get a sense of belonging and have fun!

Agnes loves learning new things and will get interested about most anything, from molding concrete to strategic cases. As ambassador for Teknikkvinnor, she wishes to participate and create forums where women can feel inspiration and joy. She’s also looking forward to getting to know more Teknikkvinnor around Värmland and believes many there (including herself) need a network like this since there hasn’t been one ever before.
