The Lise Mentoring Network
Our book “The Human Rights-Based Approach to STEM Education” is published and openly accessible.
This publication has been supported by THINK ING., an education and training initiative of GESAMTMETALL, the Federation of German Employers' Associations in the Metal and Electrical Engineering Industries.
The mentoring program Club Lise initiated the Lise Mentoring Network in 2011. The aim was to provide an exchange space to share experience and knowledge about diversity concepts for mentoring relationships in theory and praxis.
The Lise Mentoring Network includes STEM and diversity focused mentoring programs from post-secondary institutions nationwide.
Through conferences, symposiums and network exchange-days participants from different projects can share and discuss strategies and challenges in implementing Diversity in an educational context, diversity-mentoring and promoting STEM for women and marginalized groups.
Club Lise was developed in the framework of PROMISE as a mentoring program which promotes female students with a migrant-background in STEM and, thanks to the support of think ING., still remains active after 13 years.
