YUFE Entrepreneurial Programme Series: Talk Shows

The YUFE Entrepreneurial Talk Shows allow the participant to learn from the experience and advice of an expert in a specific area of the European Entrepreneurship Competence Framework (EntreComp) to promote an entrepreneurial mindset. The talks will be held monthly and will be organised by each of the YUFE universities.

The entrepreneurial talk shows are organised in two parts: the first part is open to everyone and the second part is focused on YUFE students where they will be able to interact in a closer way with the speaker.

Motivation and persistence in achieving goals

14 June 2021, 10:00 – 12:00 CET

Speaker: Lidia Chylewska-Barakat, PhD, Department of Business and Administration of Nicolas Copernicus University, Thorn/ Toruń

Abstract: The talk is divided into two parts. The first hour is open to all and will address basics of motivation and perseverance like definitions, functions, mechanisms and the neuropsychology of them for to explain what and how we can control and regulate ourselves. The role of beliefs, habits and willpower will be described using the 3-brains concept in the understanding human behaviours. Based on this knowledge we will learn how we can set our goals. We will also take a look for intrinsic and extrinsic types of motivation and concept of motivational DNA for to explain why we need different stimulus for to feel supported and successful. In both parts we will use concepts of such a great researches like Ivan Pavlov, Albert Bandura, Burrhus Skinner, Paul MacLeane, Abraham Maslow, William McDougall, Kelly McGonigal, Marshal Rosenberg, Tamara Lowe and others.
The second hour is only for YUFE students, where they will participate in a workshop where they will recognise a specific motivational DNA using the simplest psychological 3-questions test of Tamara Lowe. Implications of this knowledge – how it works and using this for practice of pursuing a goal will be described and done in small groups and individual work. For to summarising the workshop will discuss what to do (and not to do) to have autonomy, energy, self-confidence, self-efficacy and be ourselves between other people.

Certification and accreditation schemes for Gender Equality in Higher Education: the CASPER Project

24 June 2021, 13:00 – 14:00 CET

Speaker: Kate Clayton-Hathway, Research Fellow in Gender Equality and Diversity, Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice, Oxford Brookes University Business School

Abstract: In the past two decades, many Certification and Award schemes (CAs) have emerged in the higher education, research and industry sectors. The growth of CAs reflects the shift of policies and efforts from ‘fixing individuals’ into ‘fixing the system’, highlighting that gender equality is a structural, systemic challenge. Studies focused on analysing and evaluating gender equality initiatives in higher education have been scarce, and often limited to specific schemes, drawing predominantly on Athena SWAN in the UK (Caffrey et al., 2016; Ovseiko et al., 2017; Tzanakou and Pearce, 2019). The CASPER (Certification-Award Systems to Promote gender Equality in Research) study, a Horizon 2020 project, aims to contribute towards filling this gap by providing a better understanding of the CAs landscape through comparing (gender) equality schemes that target research-performing organisations in different countries such as Athena SWAN (UK), Label Diversité (France), and Total E-quality Award (Germany).

Target audience: Staff at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and organisations that work with/support HEIs
