Mentoring – Career Planning for Female Academics
The mentoring programme Career Planning for Female Doctoral Candidates offers a formalized platform for the exchange of experience in the domain of individual career development. The programme addresses female academics who would like to actively shape their career, who would like to explore and exploit their resources and who are interested in exchanging perspective and new impulses. Female academics from abroad are also welcome to apply for the mentoring programme.
The core element of this programme is a one-to-one mentoring relationship with a person, who has extensive experience in the fields of academia, science management, economy, administration, politics, etc. The modular structure of this programme comprises the mentoring relationship, professional training measures (usually in German) and opportunities for networking.
