Seminārs Women in Engineering II – LC Zurich, Šveice
LC Zurich izsludina semināru Women in Engineering II
Šis seminārs tiek attiecināts tieši uz studentēm inženierzinātnēs, programmā būs lekcijas, treniņi par to, kā veiksmīgāk konkurēt darba tirgū šajā nozarē. Protams, tas viss notiek Šveicē – kalni un skaistā daba 🙂 arī par tēriņiem var neuztraukties, jo LC Zurich šādiem pasākumiem nodrošina pilnīgi visu. Palikšana būs jau slavenajos bunkuros. Tāpat, paralēli LC Zurich rīko vēl reģionālo tikšanos, tāpēc būs iespēja iepazīties ar vēl vairāk lieliskiem cilvēkiem no Vācijas, Šveices un Nīderlandes. Pieteikumi semināram tiks izvērtēti pēc iesūtītajām motivācijas vēstulēm.
Norises laiks: 13-18.12.2015
Dalībnieku skaits: 10 internacionālie un līdz 15 vietējie dalībnieki
Pieteikšanās līdz: 15.11.2015, 23:59 CET
We already announced it after the overwhelming success of the first iteration, so now, after much anticipation, here it is: Our second edition of Women in Engineering and Technology!
During the enchanted pre-Christmas period you will enjoy a diversified academic program and experience Switzerland at its finest. Accompanied by members of German and Dutch LC’s for the second half of the workshop, you will also have the option to join our traditional skiing weekend in the Swiss mountains! But let’s start at the beginning…
Some of us might remember this moment of realisation at the beginning of our studies when we were sitting in some lecture hall and suddenly we see that we’ve stepped out of the regular world and into the world of engineering. The thing that really struck us were not the amount and complexity of the equations on the blackboard, but rather taking a look around and seeing only men. Most of us just take this as a fact and accept that there are only 6-8% female students, as it is common for the electrical engineering department at ETH Zurich. We decided not to stand idly by and joined the efforts numerous other organisations were already undertaking to tackle the issue. After all it will benefit all of us to have more diversity in the environment we study, work and live, as only this way our full creative potentials can be unleashed.
The workshop will be addressing a variety of topics concerning women working and studying in engineering and related fields, with a particular focus on developing leadership skills, confronting the “leaky pipeline” issue as well as gender stereotyping in engineering. The local and international participants will take part in lectures and seminars held by the office of equal opportunities, receive leadership and management trainings held by trainers of the EESTEC Training Team. As a participant, you will also engage in discussions with female professors as well as the rector of ETH, a world-renowned institution having educated some of the best engineers and scientists in Switzerland and the world. In addition, you will get the chance to visit some large engineering companies and meet up with successful female engineers.
But of course, we wouldn’t be LC Zurich if we didn’t offer you a solid cultural program alongside all this. A city rally unlike you have ever experienced before, an old EESTEC classic, the international night, the best pre- and afterparties in the all-new LC Zurich bunker and of course our legendary tramparty are all waiting for you.
To top it all off, we are organising a skiing weekend as an IMW right after the workshop. ATTTENTION: The Skiing Weekend is not included and not for free. But we promise, If you join us, you will experience the Swiss alps at their fullest: No matter if you’re skiing, snowboarding, sledding, hiking or just chilling at the lodge: We guarantee you an unforgettable weekend full of Swissness.
During the second half of the workshop as well as the IMW you will also be joined by members of all German and Dutch LC’s for our joint project with LC Munich and JLC Karlsruhe: EESTEC Regional Exchange for Cooperation. This should lead to a nice mix of participants, and don’t worry: English as the communication language in EESTEC will be enforced with full vigour 😉
Same as last time, we will be selecting participants according their individual motivation and qualifications. So make sure you provide a motivational letter and don’t forget to update your profile on eestec.net!
See you in Zurich!
