Are you looking to super-charge your your career?

Wherever you are in your career, a mentor can challenge you, be your sounding board and be your cheerleader as you navigate challenges in your workplace. 

Our mentoring program launches March 2024. Mentee applications are now closed for the March 2024 intake.

What to expect as a Mentee

Our Mentor Program is mentee-driven:  what you get from the program depends on your goals, commitment and willingness to follow your mentor’s direction, explore ideas and opportunities. It could be just the thing you need to take you to the next level. 

You can expect: 

  • 6-month access to your very own Mentor, who will be a volunteer with marketing and leadership experience
  • Regular catch-ups with your Mentor (at least monthly in-person or online as per your partnership agreement)
  • Events to connect with others: MWI Mentor Program Launch (in-person in Melbourne and streamed); Mid-way Catch-up; End-of-Program. 
  • Access to the closed MWI LinkedIn Group for Mentors and Mentees 
Note that our Mentoring Program Launch is held in-person and streamed.
Currently our Mid-Way and End-of-Program Catchup, and general MWI speaker and networking events take place in Melbourne.  

What can you gain?

A Mentor will be there to challenge your ideas and thought processes, celebrate your successes, and guide you in extracting lessons from your profession. This could be within your current role, a newly started role or even a side project you would like to bring to life. 

A Mentor can help you make progress with:

  • Gain valuable learnings and self-awareness
  • Work through workplace challenges
  • Develop your knowledge and skills 
  • Learn new perspectives 
  • Leverage career guidance

How does the Marketing Women Mentor Program work?

Before the program starts, Mentees are asked to complete an application form to outlines your background experience and what you’re looking to gain from the program. This will enable us to find the perfect Mentor for you.

  • The Mentor Program runs for 6 months. You will be in regular contact with your Mentor in-person or online.
  • Our Mentoring Program Launch (Melbourne and streamed online) will be your chance to meet other mentees and mentors and learn about the Program and gather tips about how to make it work best for you. 
  • Our Mid-Way Catchup Event (Melbourne) will be your chance to get together with fellow mentee and mentors to share your learnings and wins to date. 
  • Our End-of-Program Event (Melbourne) will be your chance to celebrate all you have learned and thank your mentor. 
  • This is a mentee-led program. It is up to the mentee to work out what you want to work on, and to arrange how, when and how often you catch up with your mentor, with the expectation that this is at least once a month. Catch-ups can be in-person or online. 
  • Our Mentor Program costs $250 (as at March 2023), due once the match is confirmed.  We can invoice you or your employer, depending on your arrangements.
