Offers for female graduates and women with professional experience
The OTH Amberg-Weiden, in cooperation with the Landeskonferenz der Frauen- und Gleichstellungsbeauftragten an bayerischen Hochschulen (LaKoF – State Conference of Women's and Equal Opportunity Officers at Bavarian Universities), offers support services for female graduates and women with professional experience. The aim of these offers is to promote, support and accompany women at universities of applied sciences. Below you will find information on the individual support programs.
Campaign "Werde Professorin!"
The campaign ”Werde Professorin!” was launched in 2020 by LaKoF in cooperation with the 17 universities of applied sciences in Bavaria. The importance of this campaign is shown by the figures: just 21% of professorships in the Free State of Bavaria are held by female professors, although 51% of university graduates are women.
The purpose is to highlight the multifaceted career field of university professors, to show women the opportunities for advancement, and to offer them the necessary support. After all, a professorship offers numerous advantages, such as:
- self-determined work
- combination of research and practice
- promotion of the personal development of young people
- flexible working hours that support the compatibility of family and career
What requirements you should fulfill for a professorship, how the appointment process works, and what other women value about the profession of professor and her work can be found at www.werdeprofessorin.de.
