BECOMING A MENTEE

DIGITAL WOMEN'S NETWORK MENTOR PROGRAM


Mentees
Digital Women’s Network’s focus is to assist in both professional and personal development, and inspire, educate, upskill and connect the leaders of tomorrow within all things Digital.  Our diverse Network footprint of over 8,500 people enables us to provide opportunities for a wide range of Mentees including:

Developmental Mentoring
Partner with a senior business professional with broad experience, who can act as a sounding board to explore new perspectives in relation to your career goals.

Peer-to-Peer Mentoring
Join an individual at a similar level in their careers and seniority as you to improve both yours and their overall effectiveness through shared but different experiences.

Reverse Mentoring
You might be a senior business professional looking to be mentored by a young tech savvy individual who can share their knowledge with you and enhance your understanding of operations and technology, plus increase your appreciation of multi-generational and cross-cultural perspectives.
There is no maximum age limit to becoming a mentee on the Digital Women’s Network Mentoring Program.

  • I wanted to thank the Digital Women's Network for hosting yet another fabulous and uplifting event. The Master the Art of Networking night was truly inspiring with a range of motivating and stimulating speakers who brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the forum. The wisdom shared helped elevate the confidence and skills of not only myself but others at the event around the art of successful networking I would highly recommend the Digital Women’s Network to any of my contemporaries and encourage anyone that wants to heighten their skill set in a number of areas to come along and experience the events.
