CRC 1093 - Gender Equality
The CRC 1093 strongly supports women in their careers and facilitates the compatibility of family and career. Specific measures are our program "Aspire" and our individual CRC1093 Childcare Service.
Aspire is a special program for female graduate students within the CRC, offering motivation and support to obtain leading positions in academia, industry and public life. Successful women from research and business are invited to deliver lectures and workshops and to pass over their experiences to female scientists from the CRC.
Workshops: Every year at least one workshop is dedicated to female graduate students to improve their personal skills. During the first two years of their PhD work different trainings in communication, presentation or writing skills are offered. In their final period we offer individual career coachings (see below).
Mentoring: In cooperation with the ScienceCareerNet Ruhr female graduate students and postdocs can apply for an individual coaching program (mentoring3). Read more
Career management and equal opportunities: Successful scientists from academia and industry are invited to join our Aspire Afternoon and talk to PhD students about their work, their own career path, reconciliation of family and work life and future opportunities in academic science and industry.
