Under contract from the ALC, CILTA will present the third session of the highly successful mentoring program, Women Moving Forward. The previous two sessions have involved more than 130 women from over 100 companies and government agencies across Australia.
Megan Hobson, CILTA’s professional development & events manager, said: “Delivering our third session of the Women Moving Forward mentoring program is really exciting for all of us at CILTA. We have been able to evolve and improve the program over the past two sessions, learning from the participants what works and what doesn’t, and implementing new services and assistance along the way.”
This program has become the largest, most effective mentoring program for women in the T&L industry and is being offered with the financial support of the Australian Federal Government under the Nation Building Program. The first 70 participants to register for the next session will receive the government subsidy of $200 (reducing the price for non-CILTA members to $595.00 incl GST and $535.50 for individual participants who are CILTA members).
Women Moving Forward incorporates a high quality, self-paced and cost-effective mentoring program, targeting the retention and development of women. It identifies what women want in their personal and professional lives and helps get them there. It is open for all women in T&L, undertaking any role, in any region, in any T&L company.
A recent participant from Queensland, Kirsty Togo of Coles, said: “The WMF program has been a great experience for me, it has helped me to understand myself so much and shown me how and what steps I need to take, to take control of my life and develop myself into the person I want and know I can be.”
The flexibility of the program allows participants from far and wide to be involved – rural, regional, remote – they can pick up any phone and dial in to the teleconference. Annarie from the Northern Territory said: “After every teleconference I felt invigorated and charged – this program was incredibly valuable to me and will continue to be in the future.”
