Lean In



Astrid Winkeler introduced the participants of our career program to the theory and challenges of the two different communication systems. While role playing the experienced scenes, possible strategies could be applied and tried out right away. Astrid Winkeler shows how women can recognize signals in male-dominated environments and use them for their own advantage, whether in the lab or at a conference. She does this in an exciting and interactive way. Thank you, Astrid!
