Information for Mentors (male & female)

You would like to guide a student of the Technical University of Munich for one year and support her development? Are you from a company in Munich and surroundings?

                     You are exactly right in the mentorING program!

mentorING has existed since 2002, making it the oldest and one of the most successful mentoring programs at the Technical University of Munich. Following the goal of increasing the proportion of women in technically oriented companies and making it easier for female students to start their professional life, mentorING has already cooperated with mentors from over 60 companies from the greater Munich area.

Ulrike Obendorfer, Senior Test Manager at IT4IPM GmbH:

"Through the lively exchange with the female students, my attention was sharpened as to which topics young women are concerned with when entering a more technically-oriented professional life and where stumbling blocks may lie. With these insights, I can remove one or the other obstacles at IT4IPM GmbH in good time or prevent it from being put down in the first place."

The mentorING program supports you in your role as a mentor through numerous events, contributes to the development of a viable professional network for women and, at the same time, gives you the opportunity to enlarge your own professional contacts. The events for mentors include the kick-off event, the workshops "Consulting-Know-How" and "Managing Gender & Diversity" as well as two network events on various current topics. The year ends with a closing event. The mentoring year always starts at the end of November / beginning of December. All events take place over the mentorING year. For more information about the events see „Program“.
