2016‐2017 NAWIC QLD Mentoring Program

For Women Entering the Building and Construction Industry

We are inviting current NAWIC Members to apply to participate in the 2016-17 Mentoring Program. 

We are calling for applications for Mentors and Mentees.


                                                                              

 

The Queensland Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction’s Education and Mentoring Committee is calling for participants for this year’s Mentoring Program. 

The Mentoring Program, targeted at women who are in the early stages of their career in the Building and Construction Industry, connects female students, apprentices, recent graduates and also more accomplished personnel with NAWIC Members who are currently working in the Building and Construction Industry, to offer their targeted advice and support. The Program aims to develop positive Mentoring partnerships, whilst also providing the opportunity to: 

  • Improve career planning for female students, apprentices and recent graduates 
  • Develop life skills to enhance career and workplace transitions 
  • Reduce gender specific career attitudes within young women 
  • Develop the Mentoring culture within NAWIC and build the capacity of Members to undertake formal Mentoring roles
