FEMPOWER@MLU – Open Call

Written by

Professionalization through Coaching

In scientific management positions, women and trans*, inter* and non-binary persons (TIN persons) are still clearly underrepresented despite excellent qualifications and high motivation. With the “Professionalization through Coaching” format, the MLU therefore offers individual career planning for scientists (women and TIN persons).

The participants are supported in identifying and developing their potential and making the best use of opportunities, thus successfully realizing the path to a scientific management position. Questions about the development and genesis of a professional identity as a scientist or university professor are just as important as aspects of coping with specific qualification requirements and further life and career planning, whereby the compatibility of family and academic career also plays an important role.
