Tue., 14.05.2019 - 12am-2pm st

Seminarroom 315 (Main Building), Ludwigstr. 23, 35390 Gießen

Topic: 'Career or children: Both is possible! With the right employer'

Speakers: Nicole Beste-Fopma (Expert for the compatibility of family and career, publisher of the LOB magazine and author)


The chances never have been better to start a career and to have children at the same time. The working environment is getting more and more family-conscious and simultaneously a transfer is taking place from an employer-based-market to an employee-based-market.  That means those who are well educated are able to choose their employer nowadays. However, how can you identify a suitable employer? Preferable one who still encourages your further career even after and with children present. Nicole Beste-Fopma is informing you to do exactly that with an interactive presentation.

Topic: 'Academic Career with a child: Experiences and Discussions'

Speaker: Julia Lefèvre (Department of Law) / Prof. Dr. Jan Häusser (Psychology)


A scientific career with a child, is that even possible? Which challenges do I have to expect? How did the others do it? How can I learn from them? Within the scope of the second brown-bag-sessions of the summer semester, Julia Lefèvre and Prof. Dr. Jan Häuser will talk about their own experiences as parents who work in a scientific discipline and will be ready to answer your questions.


Tue., 09.07.2019 - 12am-2pm ct

Room 201 (Erwin-Stein-Building), Goethestraße 58, 35390 Gießen

Topic:  Checklist: Family Support Structures in Germany

Speakers: Silvia Boide (GCSC)


Children raise questions – even before they are born: How long do I want to take a break from my job? Which financial supports are aiding my plans and how can I apply for them? Which rights and responsibilities do I have regarding my employer or my grant donor? When do I have to start to bother myself with all the planning? Within this presentation you´ll get an overview about relevant information regarding pregnancy, parental leave and reentrance.
