Mentoring Program

The QRC/WIMARQ Mentoring Program

The 2020 program has 61 mentees matched with male and female mentors from the Queensland resources sector.

The QRC/WIMARQ Mentoring Program, now in its seventh year, is the first of its kind in Queensland and was created in response to identified demand for formal mentoring for women working in Queensland’s minerals and energy sectors, and as a way to improve retention and progression of women in these sectors.

At the end of 2020, almost 350 women will have graduated from the program, with 90 percent of those surveyed saying it has had a positive impact on their career.

The aim of the QRC/WIMARQ Mentoring Program is to provide a structured, sustainable mentoring process that supports mentees through career guidance and direction by sharing mentor/mentee experiences, developing goals and forging exceptional mentoring relationships beyond the program’s duration.

If you are seeking to step up to that next level in your career, the QRC/WIMARQ Mentoring Program is an outstanding opportunity to be connected with a high-quality mentor to help you develop your career goals.
