Competencies required of women scientists in leading positions - Workshop
What competencies are indispensable as a leader? What strengths can be built upon? Are people prejudiced against women as leaders? To promote a more evidence-based discussion, we have invited one of the leading researchers in this field, Professor Alice Eagly from Northwestern University, Evanston, USA. Professor Eagly has led research on gender and leadership for more than 20 years and has published over a hundred articles in top academic journals and seven books on leadership and other social psychological topics. She is a leading expert in this domain and an inspiring speaker. In the first part of the workshop Prof. Eagly will present us with up-to-date information on the topic and an overview of the available evidence. The second, more practical part will focus on discussion of the research and an exchange of experiences and ideas concerning leadership.
The workshop will take place on Friday, 23 November, 10-14pm, at Haus Buhl and is limited to a number of 15 participants.
The participation fee is Euro 120.
