Self-Presentation for Female Scientists
Content and goals
Large parts of the research landscape in Germany and other countries are still dominated by men in top positions. This goes hand in hand with a rather masculine communication culture that some
women / people passing as female can't always deal with.
As a woman, do you always have to adapt to a purely male context, or perhaps a middle ground will do as well? How do I successfully present myself as a woman in my professional environment in a way
that makes me visible? These and other questions will be discussed in this interactive workshop.
In this workshop, the participants will learn and / or perform:
• awareness exercises for power and dominance gestures
• communicative high and low status
• self-presentation with practical exercise (elevator pitch)
• Performative speaking, presence and appearance to make a lasting impression
Mindmapping, theoretical input, practice units in group,offline individual work, peer-to-perr feedback, discussions
The course is funded by the iDiv Female Career Fund.
