Mentoring Programme

The Mentoring Programme aims to promote the career of new female academics. It is based on a relationship of two people (“Tandem”) that crosses generations and hierarchies. An experienced person (mentor) supports the development of a younger, less experienced person (mentee), for a limited period of time, thus overcoming the usual superior-employee relationship.

More information can be found on the website www.go.ur.de/mentoring
