The inaugural ANZACA Mentor Program Workshop is designed to launch this ANZACA-sponsored program to provide members with the opportunity to broaden & share their knowledge, skills, capabilities and experience to enhance their careers and professional development.
All ANZACA members are invited and encouraged to attend, whether looking to be a mentor and/or a mentee. During the workshop, we will discuss effective mentoring and provide opportunities to identify potential mentors and mentees matched to your area(s) of interest. Post-workshop, we will facilitate the formation and planning of your mentor-mentee relationship. Virtual support will be provided during the year with annual designated face-to-face events at each annual ANZACA conference.
