Symposium: Women in Science - Chemistry and Beyond

10.04.2015 im Wissenschaftszentrum Kiel

Fraunhoferstraße 13, 24118 Kiel

This symposium is held within the frame of the collaborative network SFB 677 based at the Christiana Albertina University of Kiel (CAU). It has been organized to support and encourage women to aim at and pursue a career in science by exploring and unfolding their own strengths and qualities. Expert women from different countries and from complementary fields have been invited to highlight diverse aspects of gender equality and discuss individual career development opportunities. The aim of the meeting is to empower men and women to discover and overcome unconscious perceptions and stereotypes in science (and beyond) as well as to provide practical hints and a chance for networking.
