Friday 14th June 2019 – Women Strike

Dear all,

A Women Strike will be taking place this Friday 14th June 2019 in Switzerland!

Indeed, on 14th June 1991, around 500’000 women across Switzerland united to demand substantial improvement in regards to gender equality. As we are still waiting for this to happen at many levels, women wish to reinforce their demand and call all members of the community to join on 14th June 2019.

As a Doctoral student, you also have the right to strike, because striking is a right in the Swiss law!

If you wish to join the strike, ADAS is organising a “workshop” starting from 15h30 at the CHUV (Room SAMOS at the PMU, see map below) to prepare banners and signs for the Women Strike march!

Also, most people taking part in the strike will be wearing purple or pink coloured clothes, so check your wardrobe!

For more details, keep reading below.

Share your doctoral expertise through Wikipedia !

Do you want to improve your vulgarization skills ? Do you want to share your doctoral expertise to the community ?

If it is the case, the ADAS is happy to invite you for a workshop entitled : Share your doctoral expertise through Wikipedia”  !

This workshop, given by Dr. Fédéric Schutz (vulgarization specialist and Wikipedia curator) will consist in a 3-hour-session where it is planned to:

  • provide a general introduction on Wikipedia
  • give you tips on the best ways to vulgarize science
  • identify Wikipedia pages where your contribution would be the most needed (linked to the topic of your thesis).
Then, your contributions will be followed over a 1-month period by Frédéric Schutz with an expected personal work of ~10h. After the evaluation of your contributions, you will be able to validate 0.5 ECTS credits to the doctoral school.
 
This workshop, sponsored by the Graduate Campus, will take place on Monday January 28 between 9h and 12h30 (coffee and croissants provided) in Amphimax room 412.
