Women are a minority in the world of scientific research at the level of group leaders and professors. Some of the main reasons for women not to continue in an academic career are a lack of self-confidence and the fear of not being able to combine having a family with a career in academia.
The EMBO Laboratory Management Course for Female Leaders in Science helps participants build self-confidence, establish authority, deal with rejection, improve the ability to network and build negotiation skills.

In addition to working on the topics mentioned above, this course helps participants to identify and build the tools that will help them to balance science and family.

The 3-day course addresses these issues interactively via case studies, group work, discussions and role-play, thereby providing some invaluable hands-on experience.

This course is open to female scientists who have already attended an EMBO Laboratory Management Course in the past.
