Female Science Talents workshops
The Female Science Talents’ two- and three-hour workshops are designed to empower women to set themselves ambitious goals and develop their own leadership strategies. The series brings the Talents into contact with top-class trainers, high-profile role models, and peers – some of whom are just one step ahead, to model a possible next stepping stone. Our short online workshops cover topics such as “Hidden Ambitions”, “Uncertainty and Leadership” and many more. We are constantly developing new bespoke workshops to help our participants advance in their careers and provide insights into gender diversity issues in science.
