Fantastic with the breadth of all the speakers, that there were both young and more experienced women, pluss one man. Important to keep this setup for other conferences. It becomes very personal and all the participants can feel a sense of togetherness with someone purely in terms of age as well.

In a survey after the SICS conference in Oslo, we asked:
Which was your favorite session?
- These are some of the answers:

"I think the mix was the best, with young women and their stories, Agneta and Charlotte, the scientists, etc. The total mix was the best!"

"The workshop day 2 and the breakfast session at NIO House, pluss the mingle at Polestar Space. It was nice to get together and meet other women from the industry.  We are now connected. Thank you!"

"Agneta Dahlgren. Both her success story and the history of Renault Group and

Megane E-Tech.

The car painter, Åse Brekke Roe. I loved her success story. "

"The stories of the young women, Åse, Emma and Mia Alexandra. It was authentic, motivating and inspiring.."
