I, Scientist Conference on Gender, Career Paths and Networking on 25-26 May 2018 in Berlin

The conference is designed by and for students and young researchers in the natural sciences and mathematics. Its mission is to increase the visibility of female role models, introduce you to a variety of career options, and give you a dedicated time for networking and establishing useful contacts.

Prof. Dr. Katharina Landfester will talk about the changes she instilled within her workplace as the director of Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, creating gender-equal place for all of her employees and improving their work-life balance.
