With this program, the Viadrina is reacting to the low number of women and gender diverse people in leadership positions. Still, several disadvantageous structures are hindering the equal participation of these people in the professional environment.
Viadrina Mentoring is an effective instrument of individual support, which is opening the possibility to doctoral candidates to be fostered and strengthened at an early stage in their self-dependent academic career paths.
The integrated qualification and framework program enables the participants to develop competences, relevant to research, leadership and management functions in the academic system and in professionally relevant fields that improve the career opportunities of the participants and supports the establishment of network structures.
By supporting an individual career, Viadrina Mentoring is aiming at professional equality of opportunities for all genders.
We are looking forward to experienced professionals from universities, research centers, the economy or public service who would like to support us as mentors in implementing this objective.
