Meet Hypatia’s former board member: Jaide

Meet Jaide, one of Hypatia’s founders!
In 2008, together with Signe, Tanja, Louise, Maja and Isa, Jaide created an organization to support female engineers developping their careers and networks: Hypatia.

More than 8 years later, she is sharing her experience:
“I currently work as an organism engineer at Ginkgo Bioworks in Boston, where we design custom microorganisms for customers across multiple markets.
In 2008 we founded Hypatia for female students and alumni of the Technical University of Denmark with a mission to provide a space for women to connect and promote their careers. I was a board member of Hypatia for three years, two of them as president. In this period I met and got to know many talented and intelligent female engineers across multiple fields. Being part of Hypatia, in my view, is being part of a network of women with diverse backgrounds at different stages in their careers and the possibility to join events that allow the members to share and enhance life goals, interests, commitment, and goodwill and thereby promote their professional development.”
