Conference Mentoring Program

About the program:
The Forestry Australia Mentoring Committee is calling for applicants from those who are registered to attend the conference (either in person or online), to participate in a Conference Mentoring Program.

Would you like:
  • an opportunity to discuss your career aspirations and future in forestry?
  • a connection who will support you to reflect on professional achievements and professional challenges?
  • to share your personal and professional insights and constructive guidance?
  • the satisfaction from helping others and contributing to the future success of forestry?

The format of the Conference Mentoring Program is short, targeted and will take place for the duration of the conference. Participants will be able to engage either in person or electronically. The program is designed to establish connections within the forestry sector by pairing experienced forestry professionals to work with recent graduates, early career, and later career professionals to assist them with their professional development and career progression within an organised and supportive framework.

The program will consist of 3 x 20-minute discussions between the mentor and mentee conducted throughout the conference and followed by a de-brief with all the participants.
  •  Introduction and first mentoring session - 1.30pm Monday 11 October
  • Second & third 20-minute mentoring sessions – Tuesday 12 & Wednesday 13 October
  • De-brief via Zoom – 2.30 pm (AEDT) Thursday 21 October
As participants may be in different locations, the mentoring relationship may be conducted in person, on the phone, via Facetime or other forms of communication.
