Creating an empowered, enduring and energetic future for women in Victoria’s transport industry.
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 6 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.
The program is open to people working in any role in Victoria's transport industry (including any Victorian government department or agency, or private business). You can apply to be a mentor, mentee or both.
Mentee participation is open to all women (inclusive of transgender women) and non-binary and gender diverse people. 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.
