New mentoring program for young female scientists started at the Faculty of Economics and Business

Prof. Dr. Eveline Wuttke

The new mentoring program at the Faculty of Economics and Business has been established for female doctoral candidates who are in the early phase of their dissertation. The mentors are mainly professors from German universities who work in the same field / subject area as their mentees.

During the 18-month duration of the mentoring program, there are regular (digital) meetings between mentees and mentors. Additionally, the participants can participate in topic-related workshops and seminars organized by the Goethe Graduate Academy (GRADE). The intention is to inspire a higher number of women to pursue a scientific career and to increase the proportion of women among doctoral students. The program, which is supervised by Professor Eveline Wuttke, started on June 21st, 2021 with a digital kick-off event. Here, the participants, seven mentees and six mentors, introduced themselves and presented their expectations of the project.
