Developing awareness & self confidence in situations of sexual harassment at work Webinar for PhD students  & Postdocs (f/d/m)

Inexperience creates space for uncertainty in ambiguous situations. The webinar brings light, clarity and positive confidence into the area of sexual harassment for everyone:
What is considered to be sexual harassment? How to prevent unpleasant situations? How to behave in an acute situation? Overview of supporting persons at DESY and the University of Hamburg as well as other institutions. The atmosphere in the webinar will be constructive, playful and explorative addressing this topic. We want to expand our knowledge to increase personal self-confidence. The webinar contains information, constructive exchange, exercises, and open dialogue. From “eye rolling” to being “at eye level”.

Registration deadline: 12 September 2021
