WIT Instagram :-)
Our Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/wit.at.cern/ is getting more and more interest and now we have already more than 900 subscribers.
We thought it could be interesting to share there more material about WIT community life at CERN and inspire our subscribers to apply or even just to visit CERN. If you would like to share something interesting from your daily life at CERN, please just add a hashtag #witatcern or just tag us (@wit.at.cern) and we will repost it.
Also, we would be very thankful if you could spread a word about us and help us to reach a milestone of 1000 subscribers! :-)

This was set up to raise awareness:
In 2020, the InternationElles will once again cycle alongside the Donnon des Elles au Velo team continuing to build on the momentum.
