The ResearchWhy Mentoring Women in the Workplace is so Important

We researched over 600 people regarding the implications of cross-gender relations in the workforce and found an alarming number were experiencing gender bias and insecurities around forming safe working relationships.

“More than half of the women in the survey said they lack confidence in their own abilities and sometimes feel that they don’t belong.”

Mentoring can provide a safe haven for growth and enable cross-gender collaboration and learnings. Our Professional Mentoring Program Plan – Women’s Edition supports this journey.

  • A repository of resources tailored to help both genders develop key skills and work effectively on mentoring women.

  • Survey tools targeted to allow greater understanding of women’s needs and future cultural change management within your organisation.

  • Algorithm-driven match compatibility that factors in key issues that women face in their careers, workplace and industry.

Women in Transport

When you empower the people within your organisation, and support inclusivity, diversity and equal rights and opportunities for all, your entire organisation will benefit. Committing to strong women’s mentoring programs and promoting this commitment to mentoring women within your organisation can help attract quality talent, improve the mental health and well-being of your cohort, and improve your overall workplace culture.

The Victorian Government’s Women In Transport Mentoring Program video is a powerful testament to the transformative impact this initiative has had on multiple fronts. Firstly, it highlights the profound influence the program has had on women. It serves as a platform for women to not only enter but thrive in an industry that has historically been male-dominated.

This video showcases the personal stories and achievements of women who have participated in the program, illustrating how it has empowered them to shatter glass ceilings, broaden their horizons, and emerge as leaders within their respective fields.

Women's Mentoring Resources

Resources supporting a diverse and inclusive workplace, providing research and information, and guidance on how you can provide support for women working in your organisation to grow in their careers and industry.

The dilemma for older women in the workplace

When it comes to discrimination, there is one “-ism” that most of us are likely to encounter in our lifetime – ageism. And yet, it’s also one of the least discussed. Unfortunately, it also has a disproportionate impact on women.

“I have loved the program and my relationship with my Mentor, who has been fantastic – and I would go so far as to say totally perception-altering. It has changed the way I see myself both in the professional sphere as well as outside of work.”
