This online session is open to all staff who identify as women.
The speed mentoring format will allow mentees multiple discussions on career opportunities and challenges with women leaders from our University partner, NAB.
The event follows on from the success of our 2022 mentoring session offering the opportunity to explore:
Pivotal Career Moments
What were the pivotal moments in your career? How did you maximise these? What actions have impacted your ability to achieve success and what did you decide to leave behind?
Articulating your value
How do you articulate your value well? What phrases work? What phrases should be avoided?
Have you ever a noticed a moment in your career where you felt you should speak up? What emotions did you notice? How have you managed your emotions in that moment? Were you able to challenge the situation productively?
