Awareness training for men in academia
“I can see there is something strange going on here in terms of discrimination issues… but what is it? And what is my role in all this?” Targeted at men in academia, this seminar aims to support participants in becoming more aware of existing forms discrimination, to appreciate diversity and to nurture an inclusive professional environment. In doing so, it encourages participants to become proactive “agents for change” within academic contexts and, also, beyond these. The participants analyze how they could contribute to nurturing a more inclusive setting. By afterwards meeting the trainer in a series of one-to-one sessions, participants can discuss their specific situation and explore eventual challanges investigating possible ways forward to support an inclusive professional environment. The specific issues covered in the workshop include both gender equality and other forms of discrimination (gender identity, age, racism and ethnic origin, religion and beliefs, disability and chronic disease as well as sexual identity).

More effectiveness in supervision and leading
How can I enable my employees to tackle a problem more autonomously and secure the outcome? How can I motivate staff to devote more time, attention and initiative to projects?
Providing professional advice and support to junior scientists is an important part of leadership in science and often involves a considerable investment of time. Research assistants who work in a proactive, results- and goal-oriented manner take the pressure off professors and supervisors.
Essential coaching techniques support the removal of hurdles and obstacles that stand in the way of the independent and goal-oriented solution finding of employees. At the same time, the potential of employees and doctoral candidates is promoted.
Your own online presence as a career boost
Social media and science – do they go together? How can I be heard and still appear professional? What goals can I achieve by presenting my research in social media?
XING, LinkedIN and Co. – a flood of platforms and social media on the one hand, the presentation of one’s own scientific personality on the other. This workshop helps participants to present themselves professionally and purposefully online. To this end, the central platforms will be presented and participants will learn how to use them in a targeted manner in order to achieve their professional goals.

Academic writing to stand out
“How can I make sure my paper stands out from the others…?” Excellent research is fundamental. But so is sharing it effectively with the broader academic community! This seminar supports participants in learning how to structure their academic writing so as to stand out from the crowd by producing writing that is clear, engaging and persuasive. Through its unique one-to one session offered on the second day of the workshop, this can be achieved for academic articles but also for policy briefs, media editorials or funding applications.
Navigating Challenges and Building Resilience in Communication
“How can I keep calm and focused while communicating in stressful situations?” This workshop focuses on applying mindful communication principles to the way scientists correspond with others in academia (and beyond). These principles include setting an intention, being fully present, remaining open and non-judgmental, and relating to others with compassion. The participants will learn how to bring on a greater level of awareness to the two major components of communication: listening and speaking. The workshop gives the opportunity to discuss fear-factors in the research process and find practical solutions to navigate these challenges in a more proactive and positive direction.
