Women in Business Spring Mentoring Program 2019

UTS Women in Business is proud to announce that we are launching our Mentoring program for the Spring semester of 2019!

The UTS WiB Spring Mentoring Program was specifically created to facilitate an ongoing mentoring relationship between industry professionals and UTS students. It is a program where the Mentors share their own personal knowledge, expertise, and insight into the journey from student to professional – whilst Mentees gain guidance and support in carving their own career path and securing success in the industry.

By participating in this program, you will develop integral and beneficial skills and experiences that will undoubtedly help you in your immediate degree, university life and future endeavours.

Before applying to become a mentee, please ensure that you’re able to commit at least to one hour face-to-face meeting per fortnight.
