Following the “No-Shave-November“ campaign of the previous year, the Equipment, Process Design and Computational Mechanics team wanted to give their female colleagues the chance to take active part in something, too. They came up with their new November Challenge with the following criteria:
All participants are divided up into small teams, each team has to solve small tasks in different areas, the team gets points for every task solved and the more points a team collects, the more success. With these criteria in mind, the group came up with tasks as bake a cake (and bring it to the office), climb a mountain, jump into outdoor water, make a team member happy, collect trash outside, give up meat for two weeks or have lunch with an unknown colleague. The response in the department was great and the motivation impressed everyone.
"Proof" pictures were posted via a WhatsApp group, which kept motivation high. The money that was raised was donated to two smaller local organizations: KulturWunschBaum and Willkommen im Herzen der Stadt München - Bellevue di Monaco.
