  • The proportion of female students (55%) and graduates (59%) exceeds that of male students, but the proportion of female PhD students drops back to 48% and that of PhD graduates to 45%. Women represent 44% of grade C academic staff, 36% of grade B academic staff and 18% of grade A academic staff (full professors). Although in some countries the situation is more favourable for younger generations of women, the data by age groups reject the hypothesis of a spontaneous movement towards equality. Proactive policies are thus essential. (Source: She Figures 2006)

    12. 13. Mentoring at Helmholtz - Figures Each year the Helmholtz Association‘s Head Office supervises approximately 100 mentoring tandems .
    13. 14. Taking the lead… Helmholtz mentoring programme for young female managers <ul><li>Kick off </li></ul><ul><li>Orientation </li></ul><ul><li>Workshop I </li></ul><ul><li>Workshop II </li></ul><ul><li>Closing Ceremony </li></ul>Mentoring Individual Discussions Coaching Individual Sessions Framework Program
    14. 15. Evaluation <ul><li>Interviews with the tandems show that for mostly all mentees and mentors, the mentoring time is very profitable. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of the tandems even planned to continue the relationship after the formal end of the program. </li></ul><ul><li>Content of discussions: Integration into the institute, professionally relevant enhancement of skills, acquisition of informal knowledge and rules, strategic career decisions, women in professional fields dominated by men, personal life planning, orientation in a new professional field </li></ul><ul><li>For the future evaluation a polished description of the criteria of success of a mentoring relationship has to be worked out. </li></ul><ul><li>The careers of the mentees after the end of the mentoring program has to be persued in a systematic way. </li></ul>
    15. 16. Conclusion <ul><li>The centrally coordinated mentoring programs encourage networking between individual institutes and centers and considerably strengthen participants identification with the sponsoring organisation </li></ul><ul><li>Inter-organizational networks are also forming: The three non-university research organisations are already working closely together on the recruitment of mentors </li></ul><ul><li>Joint advisory workshop for mentors with the aim of identifying future opportunities for collaboration will be integrated in the concept. </li></ul><ul><li>The opening of some programs to men, can bring mentoring programs out of the „women‘s corner“, but mentoring programs enable women to catch up in the working world. </li></ul>
