Self Presentation for Women

Large parts of the research landscape in Germany and other countries are still dominated by men in top positions. This goes hand in hand with a rather masculine communication culture, which some women / people read as females can't always cope with.  

As a woman, do I always have to adapt to a male context, or will a middle ground do as well? How do I successfully present myself as a woman in my professional environment in a way that makes me visible? These and other questions will be discussed in this interactive workshop.
