Mentoring Program

Mentoring is a proven and practical way to encourage the participation and advancement of women in the workforce. The creation of supportive ‘role-model’ based relationships allows a more experienced individual to guide, encourage and support the mentee as she strives to achieve identified aspirations and goals.

*Please note Women Sport Australia is not currently running Mentoring Programs and will provide more information regarding this program in due course.

Successful leaders regularly cite their mentors as having played a critical role in their career success. Mentors can also open doors that might have otherwise been closed.

Over the past several years, WSA’s Mentoring Program has provided opportunities for hundreds of women to form mentoring partnerships with senior female and male sports leaders.

Program Structure

Mentees are assessed and carefully matched with mentors to maximise the learning and development.

Mentees attend a Professional Workshop focusing on:

  • Being a Confident Leader
  • The Art of Networking
  • Boards and Committees
  • Career Pathways

There are four one-to-one sessions between the mentor and mentee between facilitated sessions and regular program communication provides guidance to mentors and mentees, ensuring progress is made. This includes a personal check-in from a Women Sport Australia Director for both mentee and mentor and the use of the Mentorloop platform.

The program concludes with a second facilitated session, where both mentee and mentor attend to share insights and experiences, followed by attendance at an industry networking event.
