The program

“Par­ti­ci­pa­ting in the job appli­ca­ti­on simu­la­ti­on gave me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get valuable feed­back on my appli­ca­ti­on mate­ri­als and inter­view deme­an­or — direct­ly from a com­pa­ny employee who is an expert at it.” — Anna Tröbs, class of 2020/21

“To con­nect with other fema­le stu­dents, share expe­ri­en­ces and work in group ses­si­ons tog­e­ther was the best part for me. The­re is so much sup­port within the group, which moti­va­tes you to fur­ther fol­low your care­er goals.” - Cari­na Sengl, class of 2020/21

Events for mentors and mentees

Kick-off event
At the begin­ning of men­to­rING you will recei­ve a basic intro­duc­tion. At this event, you will get infor­ma­ti­on about the pro­gram and your role as a men­tee or men­tor and, of cour­se, get to know your men­tor or men­tee in per­son. Men­tors will be offe­red exci­ting insights into con­sul­ting topics that can sup­port them in their role within the men­to­rING pro­gram. In addi­ti­on, intro­duc­to­ry work­shops pro­vi­de an oppor­tu­ni­ty to exch­an­ge ide­as with other par­ti­ci­pan­ts.

men­to­rING net­work events
The­se events ser­ve the over­ar­ching net­wor­king of all par­ti­ci­pan­ts (fema­le stu­dents, men­tors and com­pa­ny repre­sen­ta­ti­ves). This invol­ves, for exam­p­le, a panel dis­cus­sion on a care­er topic that is rele­vant to all sides.

Worksh“ops Mana­ging Gen­der & Diver­si­ty” or “Fema­le Lea­der­ship”
Dif­fe­rent work­shops offers men­tees as well as men­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to reflect on their own beha­vi­or with women and men from other com­pa­nies, to reflect on their own gen­der roles, to deve­lop a deeper under­stan­ding for each other and to dis­co­ver new ways of com­mu­ni­ca­ting.

Clo­sing event
At the end of the year, we take stock tog­e­ther. How did the men­to­rING year help? Was it suc­cessful? During the final event, one could reflect how the expe­ri­ence and know­ledge gai­ned in the cour­se of the men­to­rING, could be used in the future.

Events for mentees

myMen­to­rING Semi­nar “Loca­ti­on and Goal Deter­mi­na­ti­on”
A sound life and care­er plan­ning is a pre­re­qui­si­te for a suc­cessful pro­fes­sio­nal care­er. The “myMen­to­rING” event intro­du­ces you to the most important ori­en­ta­ti­on fac­tors for plan­ning your future and sup­ports you in defi­ning them more in line with your own care­er.

Appli­ca­ti­on trai­ning
A spe­cial fea­ture of men­to­rING is the inten­si­ve and prac­ti­cal job appli­ca­ti­on trai­ning, in which job appli­ca­ti­on situa­tions are simu­la­ted with the sup­port of repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from Munich com­pa­nies, thus pre­pa­ring one in the best pos­si­ble way cate­ring to the cur­rent demands of the job mar­ket.

Events of the part­ner com­pa­nies
In addi­ti­on to the mee­tings and work­shops at the par­ti­ci­pa­ting com­pa­nies, the men­to­rING part­ner com­pa­nies offer com­pa­ny and plant tours that give the fema­le stu­dents an insight into the pro­fes­sio­nal world and the respec­ti­ve com­pa­ny. They also intro­du­ce them­sel­ves as employ­ers and explain ent­ry-level oppor­tu­ni­ties.

If a men­tee has par­ti­ci­pa­ted in at least 5 events of the men­to­rING pro­gram, she will recei­ve a cer­ti­fi­ca­te of par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on at the end.
