There is an industry need to develop a structured, sustainable and cost-effective mentoring programme available to its members; the International Women in Resources Mentorship Programme (IWRMP) will provide opportunities to connect with more experienced individuals or mentors, who are in a position to empower and promote them from a professional and personal development perspective. Participants have the opportunity to work directly with successful senior members of the global resources industry.


IWRMP mentees will benefit by: 


  • Gaining career guidance and support from a female or male leader in the mining industry. Topics will include self-reflection, career future-proofing, building on strengths and expanding your personal network.
  • Receiving comprehensive training.
  • Developing career goals with a highly experienced professional that does not have an agenda with the mentee’s workplace/country/culture.
  • Having a friend to share their industry experiences.
  • Being part of a unique, tailored and global programme for women working in the resources industry.
  • Some professional industry bodies recognise mentoring as a Professional Development activity that may be logged in Professional Development logbooks. Contact your professional industry body for further information to see if you qualify.



What does the application fee cover?


  • Attendance at a three-hour training session covering topics involved with developing a successful mentoring partnership.
  • Attendance at a two-hour Kickstart event where you will get the opportunity to enhance your networks and meet your mentor (either face to face, or virtually), other senior mentors and industry VIP’s.
  • Approximately eight one-hour mentoring sessions with a mentor expertly matched to your career objectives.
  • Invitation to five monthly touch point webinars.
  • Invitation to a final Celebration event where you will get the opportunity to enhance your networks and meet senior mentors and industry VIPs.
  • Access to industry VIPs, mentors and fellow mentees throughout the course of the program (February – August 2019).
