Workshops for Women: Competency Acquisition

The workshops impart competences for a successful shaping of the professional career. Workshop 1 takes up the topic of self-presentation in professional contexts and conveys forms of a suitable appearance at congresses, scientific conferences and in committees. Workshop 2 deals with teamwork and leadership qualities. Professions in the IT sector are strongly team-oriented and require close cooperation from all participants. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the principles of teamwork, but also to find and reflect on one's own leadership style. Workshop 3 will focus on successful negotiation strategies. A good negotiating position promotes further career options, often results in better salary options and can demand a family-friendly management style. Thus lead to more appreciation for family tasks and more support from superiors and colleagues.
