The network Women IN Great Sciences – WINGS – is happy to invite you to the workshop A toolbox for academic productivity and stress management!

Aim: The aims of the workshop are 1) to provide new work strategies and to shift the focus from what you are working with and the content to how you are working and the process of your work, and 2) to learn how to reduce stress levels at work.

Content: In the workshop, you will learn three productivity tools and apply them to your own work situation. The tools are easy to implement and have a large impact. In addition, you will learn about causes for stress within the academic environment and different ways to deal with it. The workshop has been much appreciated among researchers and has been given at Lund University, KTH The Royal Institute of Technology and University of California, Berkeley.

Teachers: The workshop instructors are Åsa Burman, PhD and lecturer in practical philosophy, and Johanna Clausen Ekefjärd, psychologist.
