WoCaNet 2017: Call For Organizers


Here comes the invitation to join the next organizers’ team of our WoCaNet symposium. Do not miss this great chance to develop relevant professional skills and network on Göttingen Campus and beyond!

We would like to invite you to join us: In April 2016, a new team of PhD students and Postdocs will assemble to start organizing the next Womens’ Careers and Networks symposium (WoCaNet), which will take place in fall 2017.

To know what WoCaNet is all about check out our webpage :

If you like the concept of the symposium, but aren’t sure yet how you could help, here are a few suggestions:

..     love money? … you could be in charge of the financial aspects of this big event!
..     like to talk and communicate? … you could be responsible for PR!
..     love the internet? … you could help to keep the website up to date!
..     like food? … you could find the best caterer for delicious food at the symposium and the networking dinner!
..     love to be creative? … you could design posters, flyers, booklets, info screens!
..     like to be close to the important people? … you could invite inspiring speakers and help organize their stay in Göttingen!

..     love to rule them all? …why not become the head organizer and keep everything up and running?

We will soon organize an introductory meeting for all potential organizers.  You are welcome to come and explore – no firm commitment is expected at this stage! During this meeting, the basic tasks behind organizing the symposium will be explained. This allows people who are potentially interested in joining the organizing team to get an impression about the organization efforts and to ask questions.

For those of you who decide to get involved, a workshop will take place later where the old team will train the new team, the team members will get to know each other and divide in subgroups to tackle the tasks.

If you are interested in joining the next team or just interested in WoCaNet, please send us an email at

We look forward to seeing you!

in the name of the WoCaNet 2016 Team
