The FResHU Office organizes the workshop below as a part of the F3-TSS (F3 project Technical Support for Skill-building). The workshop is intended for young female faculty aspiring to be academic leaders in science, engineering and agriculture fields, and to provide them opportunities to hone their skills in education and administrative management. Through the workshop, you, the participants, will broaden your perspective on ways to maximize your efficiency, and the benefits derived in terms of enhanced organizational, educational and overall research potential, and how all of this impacts your understanding and appreciation of leadership.
We have invited two eminent professors from the University of California, Berkeley, who have a wealth of experience imparting skills and instilling confidence in young faculty through their original, tailor-made development programs. Sessions include practical activities such as improving lecture and academic presentation delivery and research paper writing. About ten women are to participate from Hokkaido University and another ten from various research universities are anticipated to join us. We are looking forward to proactive, constructive exchange indicative of women scientists breaking ground and ceilings for generations to come. We all stand to gain and learn a lot from the professors and each other.
