Bettina Wiedmann

Executive Director, Experiment e.V.

Bettina Wiedmann was a high school exchange student in Arlington, Virginia in 1992/93. This year abroad has influenced her life ever since. It was because of this positive experience that she decided to go abroad again after she graduated from German high school and spent a year in France. It was also because of this experience that she then decided to study Cultural Studies and Business Administration with a focus on Anglo-American culture in Passau from 1997 to 2002. Upon graduation, she started working for Carl Duisberg Society (now GIZ), before accepting an offer from Experiment e.V., a non-profit intercultural organisation based in Bonn, Germany. She first held a position as Program Manager in their Inbound Department. In 2005, she became Deputy Director and since 2006, she has been Executive Director of Experiment Germany. The married mother of three also holds a number of honorary posts in other organisations.
