Financial empowerment for female PhD students and
postdocs: strengthen your financial self-confidence
Women have been educational winners for many years. Nevertheless, they are not only still underrepresented in scientifc leadership positions, but often also face financial insecurity. Among others, starting a family during their PhD or Postdoc, parttime employment or taking on large parts of childcare and unpaid housework lead to gender-specific financial inequality. Causes of a financial gender gap can be found both at system and individual level.
Join our two-hour workshop to:
• Get information on social framework conditions of financial gender gaps
• Identify adjusting mechanisms for independent livelihood and personal money history
• Obtain basic knowledge of fnancial and budget planning, asset accumulation and retirement planning
• Avoid money and consulting traps
