Mentoring Hessen is a joint project of Hessian universities and universities of applied sciences to advance the careers of women. The aim is to increase the percentage of women in attractive specialist and management positions in both academia and business. With the help of four different lines of support, young women are supported and guided through the decisive phases of their professional development – from student to professor! The close cooperation with renowned companies and research institutions also opens up career opportunities outside of academia.

Through mentoring, training and networking, young women are supported in the decisive phases of their professional development. In each of our lines of support, we offer tailored mentoring that enables both one-on-one support with a mentor and support in a peer group. The training and networking program includes target group-specific and comprehensive workshops and events on soft skills, career strategies and other topics.
