The IPAA ACT Mentoring Program provides a unique opportunity to connect individuals from across the ACT public sector, those seeking to mentor others (mentors) and those seeking to be mentored (mentees). The program is only open to IPAA ACT Corporate and Individual members. The pairing of mentors and mentees will be undertaken by IPAA ACT, which will ensure that mentors and mentees are selected from different portfolios across the Australian Public Service and the ACT Public Service.
The 2017 Mentoring Program will be delivered over a four month period commencing in April. The program will include four events which will be held at Yellow Edge in Barton:
- Session 1: Launch Event with Yellow Edge CEO Andrew Simon - Wednesday, 5 April (5:30pm to 7:00pm)
- Session 2: Keynote Speaker Event with Elizabeth Kelly, PMC - Wednesday, 3 May (5:30pm to 7:00pm)
- Session 3: Panel Event - Wednesday, 31 May (5:30pm to 7:00pm)
- Session 4: Finale Event - Wednesday, 28 June (5:30pm to 7:00pm)
An additional feature of the 2017 Mentoring program will include increased support and resources for mentees throughout the entire duration of the program. IPAA will also assist in facilitating initial one-on-one sessions between mentors and mentees.
