Mentoring Opportunities For Women In Global Business

Mentoring Opportunities For Women In Global Business

26th May 16

Summary —

Applications are closing soon for the Women in Global Business (WIGB) mentoring program, which supports Australian businesswomen aiming to grow their business internationally by connecting women who are experienced in exporting.  


Key Issues For The Dental Industry —

Women in Global Business (WIGB) is a national program that supports Australian businesswomen in taking their products and services to the world. Jointly funded and delivered in partnership with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) and Australia’s State and Territory governments, this program develops initiatives to increase the opportunities for Australian women in developing their businesses into global markets.

The WIGB mentoring programme is one such initiative and it aims to support Australian businesswomen to engage in international business through the facilitation of relationships with mentors who are already successfully trading internationally.

Applications for the programme are open until 30 June 2016 for both interested mentees and mentors. More information can be obtained by visiting the WIGB website via the link below:

  Website – Women In Global Business Mentoring Programme

Mentors in the programme share knowledge and experiences on a voluntary basis, providing advice to the mentee and opportunities to learn and grow. Sharing challenging experiences and successes are essential factors in the success of the relationship, and mentors must be active exporters to qualify. Conversely, mentees are less experienced internationally and, through participating in the programme, learn to develop their capabilities and skills within a supportive framework during the course of the ten-month programme.

Mentees are required to be over eighteen years of age and be a business owner in Australia with a registered Australian Business Number (ABN). The business must be over three years old and export ready, and more information on these requirements can be found by visiting the website linked above.
