Mentoring

The Margaret Maltby Programme

In 1895, Margaret Maltby became the first woman to attain a doctorate at the University of Göttingen after submitting an experimental thesis in the field of physical chemistry on the subject of "A Method to Determine Levels of High Electrolytic Resistance" under the supervision of the later Nobel Prize winner Walther Nernst. She later worked at the Barnard College in New York, where she spent 31 years as a professor, at one point becoming the Chair of Physics. Throughout her life, she actively campaigned for the equality of women particularly in the natural sciences, as well as for the compatibility of family life and study or career.

Mentoring is a professional tool in personnel development. The UMG Mentoring Programme offers young female scientists the opportunity to manage their careers successfully with mentoring; a combination of personal accompaniment by a female or male mentor, training and qualification as a person of leadership, coaching in small groups, and networking.

The Margaret Maltby Programme is one part of an entire network of mentoring programmes available on Göttingen Campus.
