Workshops of the Genderboard 2019

In 2019, the CRC Gender Board organized three workshops on different topics. The focus was on strengthening the resilience of female scientists and exchanging on communication and body language. A particular highlight was the workshop on gender and communication, which was open to all (female and male) scientists of the CRC. The 2-days-workshops, took place in the lila_bunt Bildungshaus in Zülpich. The great atmosphere of the house was very supportive for the exchange between the scientists.

\”Resilience-training for female scientists – How to transform a crisis into a challenge\” with Dr. Saskia Schottelius

The training with Saskia Schottelius focused on getting to know and testing different resilience strategies in different settings. Resilience is an important tool to deal with stress and challenges in professional and everyday life. Handling of oneself and one\’s own resources was at the center of the discussion. Also basic for resilience is communication, body language and handling conflicts which were further aspects that were addressed in the workshop.

\”Voice and Body Coaching for Female Scientists: Communicating with Confidence and Accuracy\” with Julie Stearns (impulsplus)

Body language and verbal language are fundamental to our private everyday life and therefore also for scientific professional everyday life. During the workshop we were experiencing how body and language is connected, how important our own attitude to the spoken and embodied word is. Especially the voice and body exercises, which we got to know through Julie Stearns, will surely accompany us during one or the other lecture.

\”Cooperative Communication. Gender workshop for scientists\” with Dr. Saskia Schottelius

Communication and gendered performance are closely related. The workshop was dealing with gender and communication and one\’s own communication patterns. Scientific evidence as well as own anecdotal evidence showed aspects of female communication to be detrimental for professional work life. A critical aspect that was worked and improved on. The workshop was offered to all members of the CRC which resulted in female and male participation – a valuable pillar in the CRC’s gender board agenda of awareness raising. The exchange initiated by Saskia Schottelius will certainly continue in one format or another in 2020.
