This workshop introduces “gender competence” to the participants in their research and teaching areas and an increasingly mentioned requirement for professorships or other academic posts. The term “gender competence” and its various aspects (e.g. sub-competences) will be outlined, contextualized and underpinned by practical examples and a hands-on approach. The participants reach a good overview of the importance of gender competence in their everyday life and careers.

In this workshop, you will …

  • reflect on the topic of gender competence – what is it, and what does it have to do with me and my field of research and work?
  • be made more aware of gender issues in the scientific community
  • establish practical references for everyday science and research, e.g. common gender stereotypes
  • reflect gender competencies in your competence portfolio (keyword: scientific career)
