Through your participation in MomentuM, you may:

  • enhance your leadership and communication skills;
  • demonstrate your mentoring, coaching and interpersonal skills;
  • be challenged or gain a “fresh” perspective from the next generation;
  • connect with industry peers and increase your professional network and;
  • obtain personal satisfaction in making a significant difference to your mentee’s career and professional development

MomentuM Mentors

A MomentuM Mentor possesses the following:

  • genuine desire to share knowledge, expertise and experience;
  • willingness to invest time and effort in your mentoring partnership, respect the mentees commitment and fulfil the agreed program commitments;
  • ability to recognise and encourage your mentees potential;
  • ability to provide and receive constructive and honest feedback and;
  • commitment to supporting your mentee by listening, sharing and reviewing options

MomentuM Mentor program commitment

MomentuM mentors are invited to attend a program launch breakfast and closing luncheon, in addition to exclusive interactive networking workshops offered throughout the duration of the program.

These events provide an opportunity to connect with, support, share knowledge and exchange ideas with your mentee and other participating mentees. They are also a valuable opportunity to connect with fellow MomentuM mentors and industry partners.

Outside your mentor meetings, these activities are optional but highly recommended.

Between meetings you may choose to communicate via phone, text, email etc. to help build rapport and ultimately, a valuable mentoring partnership.

Upon conclusion of the MomentuM program, your formal program commitment is completed. You may then choose to conclude your program committment, express interest for the following program offering with a new mentee and/or continue your current mentorship on an informal basis, if mutually agreed upon by both parties.

Mentor eligibility

The CBE MomentuM program is open to industry professionals who typically have three or more years of professional workforce experience and who have a genuine willingness to share their time, expertise and experience. Mentors can be located in Canberra, interstate Australia or overseas.

It is strongly recommended all participating mentors hold or obtain a current, WWVP card, or interstate equivalent. As a volunteer mentor, as at 16.8.19, the WWVP card is offered at no cost but may take up to 16 business days to be approved.

Participating mentors will be required to sign the MomentuM mentor/mentee agreement (including acknowledgment of your commitment to the ANU Code of Conduct), provide a copy of your WWVP or interstate equivalent (if applicable) and complete an online profile in the weeks in the lead up to the program launch.

Prospective mentors are strongly encouraged to review the MomentuM Mentor FAQ for further information.
