Peer mentoring program
The NCCR Democracy seeks to promote its female researchers through a peer mentoring program. The aim of the program is to advance the careers of female PhD students and PostDocs in academia and beyond. To this end, the program focuses on the enhancement of skills vital to building up successful careers, be it in higher education or elsewhere.
The current cohort of female NCCR PhD students and PostDocs established the peer group Women in Democracy Studies (WIDE) beginning of 2014. The group consists of ten PhD students and two PostDocs.
In its previous two research phases, the NCCR Democracy supported the two peer groups
Stepping Stone in Phase I (2005-2009).
