Upcoming mentoring trainings and other events

Mentoring training (online)

The trainings are aimed at members of the SPP Geometry at Infinity and members of their work groups who want to participate in the mentoring program of the SPP.

We offer professional trainings for (prospective) mentors. Our focus is on mentoring for women in mathematics (and other sciences). The interactive mentoring trainings aim at preparing its participants for their future role as mentors. More specifically, the goals of the training are

  • to analyze the necessity of mentoring and its role in promoting woman in math,
  • to clarify the role of a mentor, the limits of a mentoring relationships, and to identify contact points for further help,
  • to train participants in active listening and prepare them to adequately respond to their mentees,
  • to specifically prepare the mentors for the first meeting with their mentees, and
  • to transmit the core values of mentoring.

After the training ends, participants are not left alone in their new roles as mentors or potentially disseminators of the mentoring idea. As a follow-up to the training, we also offer individualized advice for anyone who sets out to launch or promote a mentoring program at their institution.
