Power Up! Free Workshops for Students

Women* and transgender persons are still faced with unequal chances and discrimination in their everyday life at university. To enhance the possibility of participation of students at university, the Women*support Committee of the University of Vienna offers free workshops for women* and trans*persons.

In the workshops you can 

  • get support for writing academic papers and for holding presentations - especially if German is not your first language or if you are not used to academic language
  • learn how to counter dominant speakers and to take more space at university rhetorically 
  • get solid information about your rights at the university 
  • work with others on feminist and queer topics 
  • reflect mechanisms of exclusion and develop alternative agencies in anti-discrimination and empowerment workshops
