Aims, contents and method of the course

The focus of this seminar is to mentor and foster the path of women who pursue a successful international career in Physics. We will discuss different perspectives of successful women working in physics influenced by geographical, economic and cultural conditions. We will survey examples of highly internationally reputed women in theoretical and experimental Physics and we will aim at understanding that the unbalanced presence of men and women in this field is not only a matter of numbers. We will emphasize on acquiring competence levels that allow women to be successful in selection processes solely on the basis of excellence.
