Description: Since January 2017, the project "Mentoring Hessen" has combined various mentoring programs. It is aimed at four different funding lines for female MINT students, doctoral candidates and postdocs in the professional orientation phase or after the decision for an academic career. It also addresses female scientists who aspire a professorship. In addition to the mentoring concept, the funding line offers regular events and workshops that are adapted to the needs of the various career steps.

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.
