BPW Darwin Women's Mentoring Program

About our Program

BPW Darwin has received a Women's Leadership and Development Grant to run a Women's Mentoring Program.

The six-month program seeks to empower women, build confidence and leadership capacity, strengthen economic independence, support female labour force participation and ultimately reduce the gender gap in the economic status of women in the Northern Territory.

Once nominations have been received, 30 mentors and 30 mentees will be partnered into groups of six (3 mentors, with one identified as the main facilitator, and 3 mentees). These groups are referred to as Mentoring Growth Groups.

It is expected that mentors and mentees will meet face to face on a monthly basis for a Roundtable session, with a touch point each fortnight, be it through zoom/teleconference meetings, text, phone or otherwise.

In addition, for each month of the program, BPW Darwin will coordinate an appropriate professional development workshop for any interested participants to attend.
