The Level Crossing Removal Authority and Transport for Victoria are launching a new mentoring program for women in engineering and equivalent fields.

The 12-month Women in Transport (WiT) Mentoring Program is the first of its kind in Victoria and will include participants from government agencies and private construction organisations.

The mentoring program will pair a mentor with a female mentee, who will meet monthly to help mentees identify and realise their professional goals.

The program is designed to:

  • enhance collaboration between private and government organisations
  • build capability and stronger networks for the transport sector of the future
  • provide opportunities for personal and professional development
  • create a network of female engineers.

Program partners

Thank you to the following 2018 WiT Mentoring Program Partners, who will work collaboratively with LXRA to promote and foster development opportunities for participants throughout the program.

Program partners: CPB Contractors, Engineers Australia, Fulton Hogan (Northern Program Alliance), Interface Rail Engineering, Jacobs, John Holland, Laing O'Rourke (Northern Program Alliance), McConnell Dowell (Western Program Alliance), Melbourne Metro Rail Authority, Metro Trains Melbourne, North East Linking Authority, Public Transport Victoria, VicRoads, VicTrack

This pilot program is currently open to mentor and mentees with a qualification in engineering, project management or equivalent fields. We look to expand the program in future to include all disciplines, recognising the diverse workforce that make up the transport sector.
