Scientifically-oriented Gender Equality Workshop
Gender equality and providing a healthy work-life balance for members is a major concern for the CRC 951. To engage an open dialogue about individual approaches and situation-specific solutions, the CRC 951 hosts a scientifically oriented Gender Equality Workshop once per funding period, in which members of the CRC 951 and students of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin are invited to participate. The workshops are attended by female senior scientists from Germany and abroad and experts in the field of hybrid materials and are very much engaged in gender equality within the scientific community. The invited scientists present their current research efforts in the exciting field of HIOS and at the same time share their experiences of the challenges and opportunities of being a female scientist and how they overcame gender-specific obstacles. Workshop participants are encouraged to use the opportunity to discuss both science and gender related issues for female scientists from different cultures.
The workshops are rounded off by professional coaching seminars, in which the participants receive valuable advice and suggestions for application in and outside academia with special emphasis on the situation of female scientists.
