About the trainer:
Julia Lemmle - Rhetorics & Empowerment – is a communication & empowerment trainer, coach & performer. M.A. Literature & History, systemic coach (DCV-certified formation), university lecturer for 10 years, works free-lancing for universities, mentoring programs, foundations, companies & private persons. In my life and profession I combine feminism, politics and performance - I love to empower other women* on their way as transformation will only happen together.


We chose the word women* in order to encompass women, as well as trans*, inter*, non-binary and queer folk, who choose to identify with womankind. There is a live debate in society right now regarding whether inclusion within the category of ‘woman’ is a matter of biological sex, or gender. To put it simplistically, if being a woman relates to sex, this limits the opportunities for those who were not born female to self-identify as a woman. If being a woman is a matter of gender identity, this widens the opportunity for individuals to self-define as a woman, regardless of their appearance, the sex in which they were born, or other characteristics.
