Workshop Empowerment – Voice Coaching and Public Speaking for Women Early Career Researchers

Triangel Studio, Monday, 17 June 2024, 14:00 - 17:30

Sometimes it is not easy for women in a professional context to find the “right” tone of voice. “Bossy”, “bitchy”, “too shy” are only some of the characteristics attributed to women speakers, while they may be simply strong and assertive, or quietly insightful. This workshop will address questions as the following: How do I speak considerately; how do I get across as approachable while still being strong and in control? How do I radiate competence with my body language, voice, and speaking skills? And what if I am rather shy – how can I find my very own way to the podium and into the public realm?
You can attend the workshop on 18 June as a follow-up; some elements will be a repetition for you but the focus will be different!
Please dress comfortably, and bring some still water as a beverage. Dr Ulrike Zimmermann, coordinator of the KIT Graduate School Cyber Security, will be present to facilitate English/German translations.

The workshop is free for members, who have prioritised access.

To register, email ulrike.zimmermannδ by 3 June stating your wish to take part. Registration is first come, first served. Once you receive confirmation, your registration is binding. No-shows will incur the course fee.
