“I’ve met so many inspirational women from all different industries at similar points in their career so I now have a support network within my industry” – Elise Faulkner, Product Content Manager, Officeworks

FOR MENTORS

Inspire women to take the lead. Become a Mentor.

Do you have a proven track record in operations leadership? Are you passionate about encouraging and supporting future leaders? Becoming a Mentor with NAWO makes a highly visible, practical and valuable contribution.

NAWO’s flagship mentoring program, offered exclusively to our members*, provides you with the opportunity to mentor high-potential women – either 1:1 or as part of a Mentoring Circle – working through a series of structured sessions that have the potential to have a profound impact on their future careers.

Being a mentor can be a transformative experience. While you will be providing insights for your mentee, you will in turn gain invaluable knowledge that you will be able to apply directly in your own workplace for immediate impact.

Mentors are required to have had significant leadership experience in operational roles or industries.

NAWO will provide you with a ready to go NAWO ‘Mentor Pack’, complete with ‘conversation maps’ and other tools, to support you on your mentoring journey.

Together, we can help fill the pipeline of talented women in operations!

“One of the real positives has been the breadth of topics that we covered in the Mentoring Circles.” – Dean Jenkins, Managing Director & CEO, MaxiTrans

TOP 5 BENEFITS OF NAWO MENTORING – FOR YOUR TEAM
