About the program’s name
The name of the program, antelope, is an extended anagram of mentorship & training equal opportunities.
The antelope is a symbol of dynamism and advancement. In classical and medieval texts, the antelope (antalopus/antholops) is described as a very strong, wild animal that escapes capture by hunters; unless its horns become entangled in bushes:
«Es gibt ein Tier, Antilope genannt, das sehr wild ist, sodass ein Jäger ihm nicht nahe kommen kann, weil es so stark ist. Es hat aber lange Hörner am Kopf, die einer Säge gleichen, sodass es damit grosse und hohe Bäume ansägt und zur Erde wirft.»
Physiologus, Griechisch/Deutsch, übersetzt und herausgegeben von Otto Schönberger, Reclam 2001, S. 73.
