After studying economics in Mainz and Verona, Janina Kugel initially worked for an international management consultancy.

Later, she moved to Siemens AG, where, after several positions in Germany and abroad, she took on responsibility for 38,000 employees as Chief Human Resources Officer in 2015.

As one of the few women in top positions, she gained an enormous reputation - far beyond the German-speaking world - as a thought leader on the most important issues of the future.

At the beginning of 2020, Janina Kugel left Siemens AG and has since been active as a supervisory board member and senior advisor. She is a member of international advisory boards in education, culture and business and also advises the German government.

About the discussion series:
One guest, one topic - that's the concept behind "Let's talk about...". In this series of talks, Stefan Brandt, director of the Futurium, dedicates himself to an extraordinary guest. What all of the discussion partners have in common is that, due to their activities, they have special opportunities for shaping our future.

The talks want to break away from the usual talk mechanics. Sufficient time is to be devoted to a future topic and a guest, in order to be able to deepen approaches to solutions and to point out connections.
