LMU Mentoring provides career support for highly qualified, emerging female academics working toward a professorship. To this end, renowned and experienced female professors act as mentors. On a one-to-one basis or in groups, the mentors function as role models, offering their mentees support in career planning and in creating their own academic profiles.
The mentors specify the selection criteria and decide which outstanding junior female academics are to be accepted as mentees. The Women’s Representative in each Faculty, as well as both male and female professors, can put forward the name of a junior female academic – and applications from female candidates themselves are welcomed.
