Get visible and confident for a career inside and outside science

Starting point:

Female scientists continue to be underrepresented in academic science as well as in industry. They are confronted with conflicts and hurdles which are based on structural conditions and on individual attitudes and conceptions.


The participants of this workshop will reflect their own perception and communication style. Structural circumstances will be examined and male and female communication patterns compared. Using elements of drama-based training, the participants will learn how to gain and project more inner strength in difficult situations with the help of their body and voice.

Various roles and power structures will be analyzed, and the participants will get a range of tactics at their disposal enabling them to respond appropriately to provocations and unfair behavior. They will have the opportunity to practice confident appearance in situations that are relevant to them. The feedback of the group, of the trainer and of a male counterpart will allow the participants to compare and adjust self-perception with outside perception. They will thus learn to use their strengths with purpose and to assert themselves.
