I think the walk and talk is a really great idea. We spend so much time on the computer or in a meeting room so it's nice to get out in the park and get the blood moving
I learnt that my mentor had experienced the exact same issues I am dealing with and provided a light at the end of the tunnel.
I have a page full of notes and some clear actions. Best hour I've spent all month.
Mentorship is a shared benefit. It creates a forum to build connections, solve problems and learn from one another. This is the essence of Mentor Walks, senior mentors walking and talking with aspiring professional women to help them with their career challenges.
Our mentors are a diverse group from a variety of public and private sector backgrounds including the arts, government, professional services, science, marketing, media, academia, entrepreneurship and more.
We aim to keep a ratio of 2-3 mentees to each mentor, carefully matching people to create a valuable experience for all. Walks are $25 per event, which contributes to the running of Mentor Walks.
