Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - The Central Women's Representative


Strengthen your strengths. In this spirit, women on all career levels at HU are promoted to develop their full potential.

HU wants to strengthen female researchers even more effectively than before and help them discover new scope for creative action. HU aims to achieve this with particular empowerment and mentoring programmes directed to women on all career leves:

We established “firstgen” for female students from non-academic backgrounds and the “Graduate Program Adlershof” for doctoral candidates in natural sciences. Female postdocs can empower themselves though the ProFiL Programme (professionalisation of women in research and teaching: Mentoring – Training – Networking). The Postdoc Program Adlershof targets female postdocs in MINT disciplines. And finally, HU has created Leadership Programme, an excellent instrument to strengthen the individual skills and leadership competencies of already employed female professors.
