Mentoring Lecture Series

Empowering Women to Develop Academic Careers

The monthly lecture series is part of the mentoring program of nowaGEA. Via mentoring by example junior colleagues should be empowered in their pursuit of academic careers. The lecture series aims at showcasting successful and accomplished women scientists in the range of disciplines represented within our Faculty, and providing a forum for discussion on experiences and strategies of women in sciences and academia.
