TU-Dresden_BeWISE-Tagung

The CRC/TRR 205 organized together with other DFG funded projects of the TU Dresden a workshop for the female PostDocs to support them in their Career Development. Deepika Watts (A02), Ivona Mateska (A07) and Hermine Mohr (B11) took part at the BEWISE conference.

Young female scientists were offered a wonderful chance to attend workshops and exchange experiences at the BEWISE conference held in Dresden in a cosy atmosphere. While the attendees could deepen job-specific skills in workshops likes ‘Scientific Writing, Leadership skills or Networking Strategies’, there were also Fireplace Talks with three female Institute Leaders sharing their ups and downs during the different stages of their career. These role models provided young female scientist with insights about how they reconcile private and professional life. In individual coaching sessions, the women were offered additional strategic advises for their career.
