Sold out! We had to close early because of the great interest in the event.
Women in Graphene & Science will be held on 8 March 2018 at AstraZeneca in Mölndal, Sweden.
The day will include lectures from scientists
from AstraZeneca, Graphene Flagship partners and a communication consultant speaking
on master suppression techniques. To end the day on a high note: a tour of the
site which just celebrated 50 years of innovative science.
Sanna Arpiainen from VTT - Technical Research Centre in
Finland, will speak about what it is like to be a woman in science, and AstraZeneca
Mölndal’s site manager will talk about how the pharmaceutical company works to ensure
equality when hiring. Two more speakers will soon be confirmed.
How to deal with bullying, jealousy and challenging
behaviours in a winning way?
Elaine Eksvärd is a communication consultant and a respected
rhetoric advisor and lecturer. Her lecture contains a mixture of dialogue,
creative exercises, and this is an excellent opportunity for those who want to
develop rhetoric skills and gain new practical skills in how to deal with
people in different contexts. Learn how your personality affects the way you
communicate, and how to identify and handle suppression techniques.
What motivated Elaine to study rhetoric in the first place
was politicians. In the future she hopes to be able to provide them with a
new motto: Don’t make yourself clever, make yourself understood.
For the first time, the Graphene Flagship will support the
attendance of selected students (bachelor, master, PhD candidates) to the Women
in Graphene meeting through a Student Grant, implemented as funding for travel
and accommodation. The deadline for the student grant is passed.
The event is sold out, registration is now closed.
Registration is open to people from AstraZeneca, Graphene Flagship Core, Partnering Projects and Associated members until 31 January, and from 1 to 28 February to everyone interested.
