Female academics encounter many challenges at different levels, both in academia and in their private lives. Energy management, emotion regulation, time planning, integration and conflict management are all significant challenges for foreign female academics.

Using different methods and exercises, this workshop aims to reach out to Syrian female academics in Germany and support them in recognizing and harnessing their strengths, as well as enhancing their personal, social, and academic competencies.

The Workshop Program

More about the Workshop

With Bayan Adnan, a student and lecturer in the field of social work and educational sciences, we aim to shed light on various challenges faced by Syrian female academics. The workshop duration is four hours and is divided into two parts. Using diverse methods, exercises, and in a safe environment we would like to offer Syrian female academics the opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from one another, and recognize and utilize their strengths.

Based on her experience working with international students and women with migration backgrounds, and thanks to her own background, Bayan Adnan creates the appropriate conditions for an interactive workshop where participants can engage and inspire each other. In this workshop, we address personal and societal challenges and provide various tools for dealing with them, both on a personal level and in communication level. The workshop will be tailored to the participants’ wishes and needs.
