The Hobsons Bay Young Women’s Industry Mentoring Program was developed to cater for young women, their perceptions of themselves and the roles they play in their family and community. The primary goal of this project is to mentor and support young women, so they can develop to take up key leadership positions across a range of disciplines and industry sectors.
Our view is that the people best placed to support young women into leadership roles are other women, who are current industry leaders and advocates in the community.
The pilot program in 2014 will run from August through to early November. Sessions will include presentations on different industries, tips on writing resumes and job interview techniques as well as other activities to benefit young women. Mentors will be asked to assist with facilitating and presenting in some of these sessions with the support of the mentoring coordinator.
