Last Saturday the group of Fem4scholar Oldenburg and Bremen joined their powers and organized a new year’s talk with women in academia. For this purpose the participants invited several women who work in diverse fields of academia, to share ideas and knowledge about their struggles and also to connect in their success stories.
The talks featured the topics like applications in academia, struggles and strategies in overcoming the problems female scholars face in academia.
Organizing a workshop/talk etc. as a group is one of the most important features of fem4scholar mentoring. The participants learn to take on certain roles in structuring, planing and putting an event together. They learn to support each other and give back to the students of the university they are based.
