Mentor staff

Support female staff at the University to accelerate into leadership positions through the Sydney Women’s Mentor Program. The program gives female University staff a space for self-reflection, feedback and vision-setting, to develop their leadership potential for senior roles.

If you have previous mentoring experience and currently hold an executive position we encourage you to share your knowledge and shape the leadership careers of some of the University’s top talent.

What to expect as a mentor

  • You will need to commit approximately 14 hours over a 10-month period, from February to December.
  • Your commitment will include one-hour monthly meetings, induction briefings and a graduation ceremony.
  • The program is delivered through a number of modes, including assessments, coaching, career seminars and self-directed learning.

Throughout my career, I’ve learned some hard lessons. Knowing that I can use my learnings to inspire, advise and help others is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done - both professionally and emotionally.
