A Woman’s paths to leadership

Course type: Workshop
Duration: 1 hour preparation, 3 hour workshop day 1, 3 hour follow-up day 2
Audience: All PhDs in their 2nd & 3rd year
Module information:

Women are still underrepresented at higher levels of management, both inside and outside academia. Why is this so, and how might this affect how you see your own leadership potential? In this interactive workshop we will investigate what makes you, as a woman, powerful. What can you do to become more empowered and bring balance to the current ‘imbalance’?

We start the workshop by providing a selection of findings regarding gender and power, which might shape how you view your own leadership ambitions. Then we transition to a more hands-on mode, with several exercises in role-playing and communication skills. By the end of the workshop you will have more insight and practical skills to help your realise your own leadership potential, either inside or outside academia.

The workshop takes place on two afternoon meetings, with a homework assignment before and in between the two meetings. Please note that active participation and attendance at both meetings is required.

Maximum 12 participants.
