"I would recommend you first to learn the german language. Berlin is an international city and for sure almost everybody speaks english but you will only understand the real soul of this city with the german language. The second advantage: you possibly sound sexy with your accent for the german guys (Who are not bad generally)...so trust my experience as a french girl and sprich deutsch!"

You are employer of an female expat and you have already realized their high-motivated energy at the beginning is fading away.

She got calmer, more shy, more avoidant, her mood gets more bad-tempered, her work perfomance decrease, her days of illness have increased.

You already had employee dialogues, maybe you already offered her local language classes for free, but nothing has changed.


Being an female expat comes around with more (long-term) challenges than expected. Especially the psychological challenge is an extremely underrated part on both sides - female expat and employer.

Especially many female expats in men-dominated fields struggle on the long-run with mental health. e.g. at technology sector or neuroscience. They appreciate the field of work and oppurtunies to improve their skills but struggle a lot with the work environment, that is usually designed from men for men.

Unfortunately, too many companies are unskilled in leadership with female expats. Quite often female expats hear sentences as "get more confidence", "just learn the language", "get friends", "just do your work" and "you wanted to be an expat, deal with it" etc. A slap in the face of any female expat that look for support. In the end those women come to  Female Expats United, are already in bad emotional state and ask for our support.

Those experiences happen in small companies as well in big, international companies.


Female Expats United is a place, where female expats speak openly about their experiences at international business life, especially about the relationship to the employers, the companies.

Female Expats United is known and appreciated as a trustful, open-minded and safe place, that offers and creates concrete solutions.
