Meet our #WomenInWind mentor Anna 👋, the team leader for Offshore Product Management for @GERenewables #Offshore #Wind. ⠀ ⠀ "From my experience, the mindset and system bias for women and men do unfortunately still underline the traditional set-up, and so challenge the growth of women’s careers or the engagement of men in family life.
