With great joy and pride I would like to communicate that the UBS Kulturstiftung has awarded me the first recognition grant for female conductors.
I am extremely pleased about this esteemng gesture and feel honoured to thereby receive a certain role model function for women on the podium. From the press release:
With the introduction of a special grant, the UBS Cultural Foundation would like to contribute to increasing the visibility and recognition of Swiss female conductors and to further promote parity on the conducting podium.
