- For doctoral researchers
The Graduate Center of TU Dortmund University and Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts jointly organize this English-language online workshop for doctoral researchers, which focuses on the compatibility of family and career at universities.
Everyday work and family life is getting out of the usual routines and is often already very stressful. The pandemic has fundamentally changed our work environments. And basic structures are currently in flux. How does this influence families and family division of labor? Are new hybrid forms of labor a relief or a burden for families?
The online workshop's goal for participants is to reflect on their own division of labor within the family system, and how they deal with their goals and resources. For this purpose, they are offered competence-strengthening methods and support. Furthermore, the group setting has a solidarizing and relieving effect.
In this workshop, participants can analyze their resources, whether beneficial and/or harmful influences, develop opportunities to change the gendered division of labor, understand manifest and symbolic rooms, and find new ways to combine career and family work.
Participants can clarify their issues together in the group under the guidance of experienced coaches. For this purpose, workshop instruments are offered, which work with different methods (collegial case counseling, situation analysis etc.).
The setting: offers space for questions and exchange. Information on possible coping strategies as well as tools for everyday coping can be experienced.
The workshop will take place on 17 and 31 October 2022 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on both days.
