“An individual session with a good coach can make a substantial contribution to your career.”- Prof. Dr. Liudvika Leisyte, professor of Higher Education, TU Dortmund

 

PARTICIPANT’S RECOMMENDATION:

“PhD students often struggle during their research and it sometimes takes just another point of view to help them. As I was in my second year of my PhD path, I began to struggle with what I considered to be motivational problems. I had the chance to make use of a one hour coaching session with Arielle. In this one hour meeting we discussed my questions that I prepared before. Arielle, by visualizing and rephrasing my thoughts, helped me understand the underlying problem of my motivation issues. She also gave me clear tasks and suggestions on how to change my situation. I followed her recommendations and found out that the suggested reasons indeed affected my motivation, and taking the suggested actions helped me find inspiration for further research. I definitely recommend Arielle as a coach!”

Career Lab for female PhD’s

dinsdag, mei 24th, 2016

Career event for female PhD's
May 26th at University of Twente.

Career event for female PhD’s

What do you need to be able to create your own career? What opportunities are available for younger females to close the gender gap and achieve top positions?

These questions are at stake in the Career Lab for female PhD’s, a mixture between a workshop, an informal meeting, and a networking event.

Joint exploration

With 12 to 30 colleagues you will jointly explore what you –individually and collectively- can undertake to advance your career in the desired direction. And what can support you. This event is being organized by P-NUT together with the Female Faculty Network Twente (FFNT), and is created and hosted by Arielle Brouwer.

Taking charge, dynamic steering and resilience

 “In my view, it is extra important in times of insecurity to keep (your own) track, take good care of yourself, share experiences with peers and support each other, and to take charge over your own life and career –which is not the same as planning it. In these times, building a career is more like a dance with the circumstances, the possibilities from the outside in relation to those on the inside of you. In this concept, the essential place for ‘growth’ is in the personal interior development: learn how to deal with the circumstances, make choices and stay healthy and calm.”

During the dinner we will discuss with prominent professors about their experiences:
1. Can you plan your career?
2. What are the success factors of becoming a professor in the Netherlands?
3. What are the major bottlenecks in career advancement and how to overcome them?

The dinner will start with the drinks at 17.30 where we meet and greet each other. The dinner will start at 18.00. During the dinner we will hear two presentations from our guest speakers and discuss the above questions. There will be ample opportunities to share your own experiences and learn from each other.

Free dinner will be provided. If interested, please register before 10 June by email: ffnt@utwente.nl Please note your dietary preferences if any. The event is limited to 15 participants on the first come first serve basis.
