Greater equal opportunity for women
The Koordinierungsstelle Frau und Wirtschaft Wolfsburg-Gifhorn-Helmstedt , the Liaison Office for Women in Business in the Wolfsburg-Gifhorn-Helmstedt region, provides information and advice to women on all topics and issues within the context of the working world. The aims here, for example, are achieving viable employment and maintaining professional expertise to secure a living wage for women during the family phase.
