Conclusion and further steps

In this video we wrap-up this first activity and to continue to the following activities of this course.

In this video, Janet Jackson, well-being, diversity and inclusion officer at University of Groningen, explains what you just did. You were reflecting on values, qualities and pitfalls with the aim of getting to know yourself a little bit better.

She also stresses that we are part of a social context, we do not function ‘in isolation.’ Therefore, in the next steps, we will focus on exploring your own social context and how that context impacts you and your PhD students.

If you want to further dive into your different identities and their interdependencies, the Critical Self Positioning tool from the Erasmus University Rotterdam might be interesting to consider. This is also an interesting tool to raise your own awareness into how your identity affects your relationships with others.
