Women in Academia: personal & career development
The aim of the programme is to enable each of the participants to discover more about themselves through interacting with other highly talented female academics in a challenging but pleasant environment and build their networks.
Key topics of the programme are: leadership, effective communicating, leveraging your networks, and navigating the political playing field. During the programme participants will explore best practices, share insights, learn about the latest research, compare experiences, and discuss their ideas and challenges with each other.
Since the programme is highly practical, participants can put what they have learned into practice immediately. During the programme guest speakers from within Erasmus University board level will be invited to share ideas and get into discussion with the participants. Speed meetings with Erasmus Professors will be an important part of the programme to broaden the participant’s network.
The outcomes of the programme will facilitate highly talented women to:
- Navigate the academic playing field, not only from a general perspective
- Move into (senior) leadership positions – career progression
- Help address issues around gender climate
- Make connections and alliances with other female assistant professors at EUR
This course will be offered again in June 2020. Interested? Make sure to enrol!
The training will take place during three consecutive days.*
