Creating an empowered, enduring and energetic future for women in Victoria’s transport industry.

Mentoring Program

Participating in the Victorian Government’s Women In Transport (WiT) Mentoring Program is your opportunity to make the transport industry great for women. Whether mentee or mentor, you will benefit from personal and professional development and contribute to a culture of positive learning that will support the capability of women in transport now and in the future.

The 2022 program will run for six months from 3 May to 27 October 2022 and includes networking opportunities, professional development sessions, training & resources, as well as ongoing assistance and guidance to structure mentee-mentor meetings.

Applications are open from 28 February to 1 April 2022. Click here to apply.

The program is open to people working in any role in any Victorian government department or agency or private business in Victoria's transport industry. You can apply to be a mentor, mentee or both.

Mentee participation is open to all women, including non-binary and gender non-conforming people and all those who identify as women. Mentor participation is open to anyone and we encourage and welcome men as mentors. People from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Mentors can be at any level – you don’t need to be a senior manager or expert, but you must have upwards of five years’ experience in your field.

For more information, please read the Women in Transport Mentoring Program Guide 2021.

To learn about the outcomes achieved one year one from the mentoring program, take a look at the Women in Transport Mentoring Impact Report.

Watch the video below to hear from past participants on their experience with the program.

This mentoring program is delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project as part of the Department of Transport’s $2 million Women in Transport package of initiatives and business improvements. It aims to encourage more women to enter and stay in the transport sector, which supports the Victorian Government’s Gender Equality Strategy.
