Mentor system to support female researchers

The Office of Gender Equality has implemented a “Mentor system to support female researchers” as a part of Yamagata Work-Life Balance Innovation programs under model initiatives to support female researchers since February 1, 2011. This system aims to help female young researchers and newcomers (mentees) to enhance their human network, adapt themselves to their workplace, fulfill their potentials in teaching and doing research through counseling with their mentors who are their senior researchers.
