*These external mentoring programmes are explicitly aimed at women scientists, but at the BIH we specifically also want to support people with a trans*, inter* or non-binary gender identity in their scientific careers. For this reason, the Equal Opportunities Office offers the possibility to contact the mentoring programmes to find a suitable individual solution. If you are interested, please send an email to karin.höhne(at)bih-charite.de or celia.prast(at)bih-charite.de.
