We invite all female MSc students, PhD students and fellow researchers participating in the research training group to our monthly lunch meetings. During these meetings we will discuss gender issues such as the challenges women researchers are faced with in their every-day work life. We would appreciate your ideas on how to strengthen the position of women in the world of science and will assist you in your efforts to promote your career.

The meetings are organized by Prof. Stephanie Hansmann-Menzemer and Dr. Monica Dunford.

1st Career Coaching for Women Researchers:

Communication Skills - Conflict Management - Career Promotion

Although the number of women holding academic positions has increased over the years, they are still not sufficiently represented in science and research. A priority of the group’s gender initiative is to help women academics pursue their career goals. Communication skills and effective conflict management are the key factors in this process. In the workshops women will learn how to incorporate communication techniques to attain their goals while building trust in their professional relationships. Conflicts will be seen as an opportunity to enhance workplace relations and not as a threat to a peaceful work environment .

The workshops will be organized in cooperation with the Center for Science & Research Management in Speyer. ZWM
