Coaching programme for female academics

This programme offers professional coaching services to early career female researchers who want to advance their careers with the aim of taking on leading roles in their respective fields. The Gender Equality Office coaching programme provides women academics with professional, unbiased and confidential advice and assists them with key career advancement decisions. Coachees will receive guidance on career-relevant decisions and on current and future leadership and management duties and they will be given space for self-reflection through professional feedback on their performance in presentations and negotiations at the relevant stage of their career development.

Those selected for the coaching programme can choose from a pool of female and male coaches from the academic and business sectors who take a gender-aware approach to their work. The programme provides funding for up to three individual coaching sessions. The Gender Equality Office will help to match applicants with a suitable coach.
