Expert Exchange 2022: Visibility of Mentees & Activities for Alumnae of Mentoring Programs



On 7th December 2022 a member of eument-net, Annette Ehmler, is going to share the best practice to increase the visibility of women scientist (mentees and alumnae) at the University of Greifswald (Germany).

University of Greifswald, situated in the North-Eastern part of Germany, is a fairly small institution of higher education with approx. 10,000 students. Female students, PhDs and postdoctoral researches have the opportunity to participate in various mentoring programmes of KarriereWegeMentoring. For the tenth anniversary of the mentoring-programmes in 2021, KarriereWegeMentoring established a variety of events and activities. Some of them – like the Mentothek or the advent calendar –  focussed on mentees and alumnae and aroused a nationwide interest. Both activities also contributed to more visibility of mentoring and the participants involved. Annette Ehmler will present both activities: What was the idea about – how were they realised and what tips can she give to those, who plan similiar activities?

We invite you cordially to the Online Expert Exchange on December 7th, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. All eument-net members are invited via e-mail. If you are not a member but you would like to take part, please feel free to apply until December 5th in order to get the link for the event.
