16 March 2023: Workshop "Empowering myself for Gender Equality in Organizational Structures” for the IceCube Collaboration


In the Lunch Workshop "Empowering myself for Gender Equality in Organizational Structures" participants will explore some of their own sources of power and get a status quo of their strengths and competencies. The trainers will give an insight into structural measures and programmes towards equity and equal opportunities at RWTH Aachen University.
The participants will use this knowledge to develop some ideas of how they can enforce a better work environment for equal opportunities in their own research context, i.e. individually for themselves and structurally as a group and as an organization.
