The Famos für Familie award ceremony, honoring both the 2020 and 2021 award winners, took place virtually this year due to the pandemic. The winner’s staff members, the rectorate, and the jury members were also invited to participate.
Music for the event was provided by the Carbon String Quintet of RWTH’s Collegium Musicum, and speeches were held in the form of creative videos and presentations in which each team appreciated the family-friendly leadership style of their supervisor.
