Women in Strata are proud to launch the inaugural WiS Mentor Program in 2017/18 –  “Confidence Growth”

‘In learning, you will teach, and in teaching, you will learn’ – Phil Collins

A fully supported program, the WiS mentor program aims to address the issue most commonly identified as a road block for women in achievement – confidence!

The purpose of the Women in Strata (‘Wis’) Mentoring Program is to facilitate mentoring relationships so that experienced strata industry and business mentors can share advice, knowledge, support and experiences with mentees, resulting in a mutually beneficial professional development relationship, and increased professionalism across the sector. In addition to providing professional development, the program will aim to address specific issues impacting women, with a focus on building confidence to achieve career progression and life happiness through balance.

Launching on Thursday 5 October 2017 at Macquarie Bank Sydney,
7.30am for a light breakfast

Hear from and discuss with our expert panel – Amanda Farmer, Robert Van Aalst and Laura Mears – the power of mentoring
