    • Report of the workshops in Austria (I)Girls as target group of mentoring programs are difficult toacquire ( e.g. in youth organisations, support programs)Most relevant problem area/s of girls and young women:• Self esteem, self worth, self confidence• Eating disorders / mental problems with beauty ideals• Sexuality / sexual demands, sexual self confidence• career choices according to traditional role models: hairdresser, shop assistant or secretaryTechnical careers are still uncommonGirls and young women – no networks

Age of 30 until then it„s rather unreal, but then there is big frustrationPositive Discrimination to bring women in „men„s domains“ is rather ambivalent (sometimes felt as deficit)Integrated Approach – including famlies, peers, companiesThere is little offer of mentoring programs in non-traditionalprofessions
