The MentoringPLUS workshops are open to all women junior scientists/scholars from any field of research at Graz University. The workshops aim to prepare female PhD students and Post-Docs for a traditional mentoring partnership. Mentees are guided to actively shape their mentoring partnership. They shall define their goals, which they shall then work on achieving together with their mentors. Individual coachings support mentees in their endeavours, provide guidance and offer stimulus. This programme enhances women's scientific/academic careers; the language can be English or German.
Female PhD students and Post-Docs of any discipline at Graz University who aim to engage in supportive interaction in the shape of mentoring for their scientific/academic career.
Workshop: Wintersemester 2021, 5 hours, details are coming!
Plus individual Coaching: 2 Coachings for each participant
The activities in the area of gender equality are based on the long-standing observation that the scientific potential of women is often not translated into status gains in the scientific community, despite existing high qualifications. As a result, the proportion of women in the academic population decreases rapidly between the start of studies, graduation and the individual career stages of an academic career.
This situation is to be counteracted by our measures like Mentoring. The guiding question for the content design is: How can women translate their scientific qualifications into access to status in the scientific community?
The goals are to establish a gender-symmetrical culture at the universities in Graz and to support gender equality measures.
