"Not only does she have a heart for employees, but also for their children!" - that is why Emma Saad is receiving the RWTH award "FAMOS für Familie." The managing director of the Faculty for Mechanical Engineering was nominated for this award by employees. RWTH Chancellor Manfred Nettekoven presented her with the award - which has been given out annually since 2009 - during a small ceremony.

Saad has been linked to the University for decades. She studied German and Art History in Aachen and – except for a short stint of teaching at the Goethe-Institut in Algiers – has been working in a number of RWTH institutions since. She is the mother of two children and meanwhile, also a grandmother of two, and she is committed to family-friendly working hours and allows remote work from home. She stays in contact with employees who are on parental leave and strives to make transitions and re-entries smooth. She's not afraid of "unusual" careers; quite the contrary, she enjoys providing support for making new career plans succeed.

Emma Saad is more than a boss. She challenges and supports everyone in their individuality.
