Discussion Sessions

Saturday, 13 May 2017, 4:00pm – 5:30pm

The discussion sessions are inspired by the book “Lean In” by Sheryl Sandberg and her respective TED talk. They will be held in parallel in different groups: for women only, for men only, and for all genders. You are free to choose which session you would like to attend – either with only people of your gender or of all genders – but each session is limited to a maximum of 80 participants (first come – first served). No preregistration is required. Each session will start with an introduction and discussions in small peer groups on different topics. After this, participants may volunteer to share their experiences and discussion outcomes on the stage and a moderated discussion will conclude the session. We are looking forward to an open-minded discussion, respecting the confidentiality about shared personal stories, which will help everyone identify barriers and develop potential ways of action to overcome them.
