Ad Feminam

Ad Feminam mentoring is intended to encourage women to explore their leadership potential within academic life, or within an administrative career, for example as leaders of departments and divisions or in university governance.

The scheme is expected both to benefit individual mentees and to contribute to culture change within the University.

Mentees will have demonstrated an aptitude or potential for leadership and will normally meet one of the following criteria:

  • An academic having completed her first five-year term of office; 
  • A researcher holding a fellowship of at least five years duration; 
  • An administrator graded 9 or above having at least five years' service.

The present scheme finishes in Michaelmas 2017, with new partnerships due to start at Easter 2018. To register an interest in the scheme or to find out more please contact Clare Wakeham.
