Peer Mentoring – Career Development
Peer mentoring is tailored to doctoral candidates and post docs who do not have a clear career goal yet. They might have questions like, “Should I stay in academia or pursue a career in other working fields? Which kinds of opportunities are available for me? What would a successful step from academia to the working market look like?” The goal of this mentoring programme is to support this process of exploration and decision. It is easier to detect your own competencies and goals in a group of peers. Additionally, a group of peers has a wider range of experience and networks. The programme includes two appointments of six hours each. Both meetings are moderated by Dr. Cornelia Rahn.
Between both meetings the participants are asked to continue working.
Free of charge for doctoral candidates and postdocs of HU Berlin.
Registration: hgs-mentoring@hu-berlin.de

Peer Mentoring – Karriereentwicklung (Kurssprache: Deutsch)
Peer Mentoring richtet sich an Promovierende und Postdocs, die noch kein klares Karriereziel haben und sich fragen, wie es nach der Promotion beruflich weitergehen kann. Soll ich in der Wissenschaft bleiben oder eine außeruniversitäre Karriere anstreben? Welche beruflichen Möglichkeiten gibt es für mich außerhalb von Universitäten? Wie kann der Umstieg von der Hochschule in den außeruniversitären Arbeitsmarkt gelingen? Das Ziel des Peer Mentoring Programmes ist, diesen Erkundungs- und Entscheidungsprozess zu unterstützen. In einer Gruppe von Personen, die in einer ähnlichen Situation sind, ist es einerseits leichter, die eigenen Stärken und Ziele klarer herauszuarbeiten. Andererseits verfügt eine Gruppe auch über einen größeren Erfahrungsschatz und mehr Kontakte in den Arbeitsmarkt. Das Programm umfasst zwei Termine, die beide von Dr. Cornelia Rahn geleitet werden:
In der Zeit zwischen den Terminen gibt es Aufgaben zur Bearbeitung.die Veranstaltung findet im Raum 123 (Luisenstr. 56, Berlin Mitte) statt.
Anmeldungen: hgs-mentoring@hu-berlin.de
Kosten: Für Promovierende und PostDocs der Humboldt-Universität ist dieses Angebot kostenfrei.

Workshop »Gut gebrüllt, Löwin«
Trainerinnen: Dr. Anne Löchte (Coach & Laufbahnberaterin) und Meike Finck (Schauspielerin & Trainerin)
Inhalte: Der Workshop behandelt das Thema „Frauen im System Wissenschaft“ aus zwei Perspektiven: Am Vormittag des ersten Tages gibt es einen Input zu den diversen potenziellen Hürden und Stolpersteinen. Es werden Situationen besprochen, die die Teilnehmerinnen erlebt haben, und Strategien diskutiert, wie sie mit diesen umgehen können. In den folgenden 1,5 Tagen liegt der Fokus auf Rollenspielen. Es werden spielerisch exemplarische Situationen erprobt, z.B. eine Vorstellungsrunde, ein Konferenzsmalltalk, eine Teamsitzung. Die Teilnehmerinnen beobachten, was z.B. in hierarchischen Kommunikationssituationen passiert und erproben, wie sie sich hier verhalten wollen und können. Der genaue Ablauf der Rollenspiele wird nach Rücksprache mit den Teilnehmerinnen festgelegt.
Umfang & Termin: 2 Tage, 9–16 Uhr in der Theologischen Fakultät (Burgstraße 26, R. 206); Zielgruppe: Promovierende und Postdoktorandinnen. Zur Anmeldung genügt eine kurze Email an gz-theologie@hu-berlin.de.

Understanding Selection Committees for (Women) Professorships
WiNS Adlershof program (Women in Natural Sciences)
If you want to pursue a career in science and become a professor, you need to be familiar with the procedures of selection committees. What are the do’s and don’ts? What are the unwritten rules of the selection process? How can you prepare for this challenging task? What questions might you expect to have? Prof. Caren Tischendorf and Prof. Maite Wilke Berenguer will share their knowledge about selection committees to help you to strategically plan your next steps on the way to a professorship. Both are mathematicians, but have participated on many juries in other disciplines of science. Their firsthand knowledge and advice will thus be useful for all PhD students or postdocs who want to stay in science.

Becoming Aware Through Mindfulness
Scholar Minds is a PhD initiative based in Berlin which focuses on mental health during the doctorate. Their mission is to help other PhD students to achieve a better mental health and work-life balance. Pursuing a doctorate is an exceptional time with great opportunities like investigating a phenomenon no one ever did before or discussing your research with new people from all over the world. But are you aware that this exceptional time also harbors exceptional dangers to your mental health? Are you aware that you as a PhD student are six times more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression? During the event, the team will raise participants' awareness on mental health struggles related to their doctorate and introduce a tool to become more resilient: mindfulness. Mindfulness is a simple meditation tool that can help you to increase mental well-being. With the team at this event is mindfulness expert Dr. Simon Guendelman (Berlin Scool of Mind and Brain) who will present the concept and latest findings from (neuroscientific) research.
