Irène Joliot-Curie Program

One important strategic aim of PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence is to achieve equality between male and female scientists at the institutional and research level. The Irène Joliot-Curie Program has been set up to support women in all phases of their scientific careers both at the cluster and in their broader research work.

Irène Joliot-Curie (*12 September, 1897, † 17 March, 1956) was a French scientist. She was the eldest daughter of Marie and Pierre Curie and later the wife of Frédéric Joliot-Curie. Irène Joliot-Curie together with her husband was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1935 for their discovery of artificial radioactivity.

The program was launched in December 2013 on the initiative of Concettina Sfienti. It offers workshops, training sessions, and network meetings for women in and around the Cluster and the Faculty of Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science at JGU. Events to raise gender awareness, such as a lecture series, regularly reach a large female and male audience. Complementing the existing support structures at JGU, IJCP is focused on a physics-specific perspective.

PRESENTATION FOR THE VIRTUAL STAGE - ONLINE WORKSHOP WITH JULIE STEARNS

This online seminar provides participants the opportunity to improve their presentation skills particularly for the virtual audience. Throughout the workshop, participants will be guided through interactive exercises to improve verbal and nonverbal communication online, improve the ability to listen and react generously, and to integrate focusing techniques, which empower the speaker. Attention will also be given to structural and language aspects to improve clarity and flow of the talk.

Participants will be required to prepare a 3 to 5-minute overview of their work; the use of slides is optional. This will provide a basis for applying the practical aims of the workshop. Throughout the workshop, participants will be guided through interactive exercises to improve non-verbal communication, improve the ability to listen and react generously, and to integrate focusing techniques, which empower the speaker. Attention will also be given to structural and language aspects to improve clarity and flow of the talk. All women in physics are welcome.

If you would like to attend the event, please register at s.wortmann@uni-mainz.de until June 24. Please be aware, the number of participants is limited.
