Event Details

We are excited to be launching our highly anticipated mentoring program again for 2021. This year, we are implementing some changes that will see a greater intake cohort. Our new and improved offering is designed to expand our reach into Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne and we are hosting two rounds of intakes this financial year.

Intake 1 Applications Close 31st July 2021 - Limited Availability

Our mentoring program is offered exclusively to our members, this enables us to support you on your journey of career growth by connecting you not only with your mentor but also with our community of like-minded professionals, providing you with countless opportunities to practice anything you are working on with your mentor.

If you have ever considered seeking out a mentor, this is one of the easiest ways to establish a mentor-mentee relationship. We do all the hard work for you including throwing you a networking event to remove the awkward ice breaking initial meeting.

Unlike other mentor programs, ours is to choose your own adventure style. What we mean when we say that is, we don't structure your experience to a one size fits all program. How we do get involved is by collecting your aspirations and seeking out industry professionals who would be suited to support you, we introduce you, virtually and physically, and provide prompts for discussions designed around your aspirations to keep you on track.

We encourage everyone to participate in the program as both a mentor and mentee. This gives you the opportunity to share any learnings from your mentor to your mentee and creates a 'pay it forward' economy of support. And that's what WIDAC is all about.

If building your connections, strengthening your network, and receiving personalised guidance through this program hasn't sold you yet, we have collected some research from the market about the impacts of mentoring, presented neatly here for your additional consideration…

  • It gives you warm and fuzzy feelings to help people!
  • Research shows that people who receive mentoring are promoted 5 times more often than those who do not.
  • The impacts on growth are two-fold over education and training alone.
  • At least 60% of graduates are actively seeking it out in their employers.
  • A strong network of mentors will encourage growth to advance your career.
  • Over 70% of fortune 500 companies run formalized mentoring programs, we don't all work for top tier companies with expansive resources, so let us be the platform you need.
