Women are faced with a unique set of circumstances: we are often given a role that we perform in our personal and pro-fessional lives that we are not even aware of, and this role may affect the way we see and assess ourselves. Research has shown that, although both sexes suffer from imposter syndrome, women are more likely than men to be adversely affected by it.

Using unique techniques and exercises from the theatre, this workshop offers participants a chance to explore, define and redefine their role in their professional life and to learn new ways to become “pressure proof” in presentations and other stressful situations by turning stress and pressure into ener-gy and motivation.

The workshops are free of charge for female doctoral students and female early career researchers of the DFG-funded research networks
