Just Published: Practical Handbook “Mentoring in the Sciences”

The practical handbook “Mentoring in the Sciences” serves as a guide through the multitude of mentoring programs and approaches that have gained in significance in the sciences as of late.

It explains the origins of mentoring programs, the contents, objectives and benefits of separate program modules for different target groups and program participants as well as for the various institutions.

Furthermore, different program formats are being placed in the context of subject-specific, local or nationwide particularities and groups while also putting mentoring in the context of organizational and human resources development.

The editors of the handbook are mentoring experts at various universities located in North Rhine-Westphalia. One of these experts happens to be Dr. Henrike Wolf, who is the director of the TANDEM mentoring programs at the Faculty of Medicine. All involved editors have also acted as authors.

Valuable practical advice for everyone who is interested in gender-sensitive mechanisms in the areas of human resources development and the promotion of junior talent. Available now at VS Publishing.
