Women In Technology Mentoring Program
During the course of our careers it is invaluable to create and grow great connections, provide and get support to achieve personal goals and share knowledge.
After much research WiT has developed a Mentoring Program that is easy and affordable to access but also condensed into a 12 week period to give Mentees access to quality Mentors and to explore a mentoring relationship within safe and manageable parameters. The program also provides a manageable framework for time-poor Mentors who feel strongly about passing on their skills to others.
Our WiT Mentoring Program runs for a 12 week period, biannually and begins with an extensive workshop for Mentors and Mentees after which matches are made. Connection is then made weekly for an 8 week period. How you use this time is up to you, some meet for
coffee and a chat, others communicate by phone, email or online.
There are checkpoints along the way and the program culminates in a closing breakfast debrief. Attendance at the workshops are crucial for Mentors and Mentees to ensure that everyone is on the same page with respect to process and expectations.
Matching is done openly by members of the WIT Mentor program committee, based on:
Matching is an extremely challenging process. We do the very best to make the best matches, based on the information provided in the application and direct experience.
It is crucial that if you are concerned in anyway with your relationship you should notify us immediately so we can source an alternative arrangement.
