EESA National Group Mentoring Program

EESA National Group Mentoring Program

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

The National Group Mentoring Program organised by Electric Energy Society of Australia (EESA) is a new program committed to empowering the young and upcoming Engineers to flourish across Australia's Electric Energy industry. Whether mentee or mentor, you will benefit from continuous development and contribute to a culture of positive learning that will support the capability of engineering in the industry today and in the future. This program is an Australia-wide initiative offering professional development and networking. Importantly, regular guidance will be provided to help structure mentee-mentor meetings.

Unique to EESA, Mentoring is the opportunity to build networks across several disciplines, government and private business in Australia’s Electric industry. Mentors and mentees will be matched based on their professional objectives, backgrounds and interests. We encourage you to utilise your new COVID-19 lifestyle to take the challenge to not only build your mentor relationships virtually but also expand your professional network to wider Australia.
