Thank you Rio Tinto for being our 2022 Platinum sposor!

The 2021 program has a record 75 mentees. The program, now in its eighth 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 had 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.
