In summer term, the Equal Opportunities Committee organizes a series of roundtable discussions on “Pursuing an academic career in Germany”. The series is composed of three events, which will be bilingual and 100% virtual, and will offer the possibility of open exchange with experts and experienced researchers. The guests on the board will start with a short statement (5 to 10 minutes), and then the moderator will enhance a discussion between the members of the (virtual) board and very soon the whole group of participants. The aim is to offer a safe space for both speakers and participants to share and discuss their own experiences, questions, doubts and problems.

The third roundtable discussion organized within the series “Pursuing an academic career in Germany” deals with “Struggles of pursuing an academic career in Germany (as a woman)”, and is therefore primarily tailored to female graduate students. Nonetheless, the session will also be relevant to every graduate student, as issues concerning career management, personnel structure, alternative career paths, which are not necessarily a professorship, will be addressed. The focus of this session lies on the potential struggles and possible solution approaches to the most common hurdles in planning and pursing an academic career and professorship. Additionally, the discussion will address struggles of accommodating family and career as well as the specific obstacles of female scholars in German academia.
