Workshops and Coaching for Women

I beg to differ! Debate training toward awareness for gender related topics

November 23-24, 2023, in-person in the BMC (room t.b.a.)

The debate training aims to raise awareness of equality issues by arousing the participants' interest: By addressing the issues in the argumentation training and in various debate topics, participants succeed in dealing with the topic of equality on an intuitively accessible level. The participants are thus sensitized to the topic of equality and re-evaluate its relevance for their everyday (work) lives. In addition, the participants train their argumentative and rhetorical skills. The debate training thus promotes the culture of debate.

But does this also translate into a world full of possibilities or are we still stuck in the process of climbing the various ladders under the glass roof? This seminar will give you guidance on how to navigate your life as a working female scientist." (excerpt from the project description on the NaturalScience Careers website)
