Ca­reer as a sci­ent­ist: "Make an Im­pact!" work­shop

Location: Zoom

The Central Equal Opportunities Officer of Paderborn University offers various workshops for female doctoral and post-doctoral students as part of the "Career as a Scientist" series. On 17 and 24 May 2024, the "Make an Impact!" workshop with speaker Julie Stearns will take place online via Zoom from 9 am to 1 pm. The number of participants is limited to 12. Seminary language is English. Those interested can register by emailing Stefanie Lichtenauer (stefanie.lichtenauer(at)upb(dot)de). All offers can be found on the website of the Equal Opportunities Officer.

How can I make an impact in professional contexts, for example in small talk situations at conferences? What can help me in situations where I am confronted with an international audience and how can I get in touch with an interdisciplinary audience? The workshop offers the opportunity to improve general communication skills (verbal and non-verbal) in order to increase networking and self-marketing opportunities. The workshop focuses specifically on self-presentation in terms of voice quality, body language and verbal expression in academic and professional contexts. Participants will learn how to improve their self-marketing skills, increase their research and networking prospects and make the most of their intercultural and interdisciplinary communication opportunities.
