The Mentoring Program for Women.

Find your W@Y

Find your W@Y gives you the opportunity to be supported on your career path by a personal mentor for a full year. The focus is on personal and professional exchange. Your mentor's experience can help you to clarify any questions you may have about your next career steps and eliminate any uncertainties.


Nice insights.

Are you a budding lawyer or tax expert? Are you wondering how you can master your legal clerkship or doctorate? Or have you embarked on a career as a tax consultant, and are itching for tips from someone who has already gone down this path? If so, Find your W@Y is the right place for you!

What you can expect


Your mentor is looking forward to meeting you regularly for a personal exchange over lunch or dinner. She will also be available at short notice to answer any questions you may have about your professional development. 

Through this exchange, you will gain valuable insights into the day-to-day work of a commercial law firm and get to know both YPOG and our YPOGees better. 


Female Development

You will be invited to a variety of training events that are specifically aimed at women. Among other things, the focus is on communication and presentation training, as well as applicant training.



Twice a year, we organize a meeting for all mentees and mentors at one of our YPOG locations. These events will give you the opportunity to talk to many other women and expand your personal network.

When does it take place?

Duration: 12 months

Start: June
(individual arrangements are possible)

Kick-off event: June 20, 2024 in Berlin

How to become part of our mentoring program:

Send your application documents to by May 31, 2024. We look forward to receiving your CV and some brief information about which location and, if applicable, which departments are of interest to you.

What happens next with your application?

Once we have received your application, we will get back to you as soon as possible. If there is sufficient capacity, you will receive a suggestion for a suitable mentor and get to know them in a one-to-one meeting. If you already know a colleague or have one in mind, please let us know.

The aim of getting to know each other is to establish as trusting a relationship as possible between you and your mentor. The program will then start with a kick-off event in June 2024, during which you will also get to know the other mentees and mentors.

“From my own experience, I can say how important it is to have great women not only as role models, but also by your side. Our mentoring program offers the opportunity to learn from experienced female colleagues and to gain important skills for your professional career and very specific advice on how to achieve specific goals.”

“With our mentoring program, we want to provide you with contacts for questions about studying, traineeships, and starting your career, as well as offer you the opportunity to build up a network at an early stage. That's what counts for us: Women support women.”

“I am very happy to be part of the mentoring program. It is a pleasure to be able to support young female lawyers and tax experts with their questions and through my own experience, but also to be connected to the topics that the 'next generation' is currently dealing with, through mentees.”
