Mentoring Scheme for Women

2018-19 — Launch of new call for the QMUL Women's Mentoring Scheme

The Equality Diversity and Inclusion Team is launching the QMUL Academic Women’s Mentoring Scheme for all faculties for 2018/2019.

The work Queen Mary is undertaking for the Athena SWAN programme, has shown a disparity between the numbers of male and female staff at higher levels of seniority i.e. beyond lecturer level. The mentoring scheme is one of the actions QMUL is taking to address this imbalance.  

Should be Senior Lecturer level or above. Can be Male or Female.
Mentees: Should be female academics (Lecturer) who have the desire and ability to progress their career to more senior levels.

The mentees will benefit from the knowledge, expertise and experience of all senior academics at QMUL, and the Vice Principal Team would like to encourage more male senior academics to participate in the scheme.

To apply as a mentor or mentee, please fill in the Mentor and Mentee Expression of Interest Form and provide as much information as possible to support the Team in the matching exercise.  Please also forward a copy of your CV.

Both mentors and mentees will be expected to undertake a half day training workshop in the New Year as part of the programme.

Dates are as follows;

Whitechapel Campus 29 January 2019

Mile End campus       30 January 2019

Charterhouse Square 31 January 2019

Please note, places are limited on this programme so it is essential that you provide us with information about how you will benefit from it (mentees) and how you will contribute (mentors).

Please send your completed form and CV to by 21 December 2018

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee and need further information, please contact Sandra Brown at or 0207 882 5585.
