WISE-WACQT Mentorship Program

The WISE-WACQT Mentorship Program is an initiative that aims at providing support for female PhD students and post-docs either at the E2 Department within WACQT or within Nano Area of Advance, through mentorship. The idea is to provide a one-to-one connection between junior and senior scientists working at different departments at Chalmers.

Mentorship Program will foster opportunities to exchange ideas, discuss challenges, obtain career coaching, as well as having a possibility to report difficulties and problems in case of need. The program is supported by the Gender Initiative for Excellence at Chalmers - GENIE.
