Pilot Mentor Program (WA only)

The Governance Institute of Australia provides the opportunity for graduates of the Graduate Diploma of Applied Corporate Governance and Risk Management to gain professional guidance and practical knowledge from experienced Fellow members.

Mentoring is a critical component in supporting our members to succeed after their studies, both by developing their key skills, and by fostering healthy relationships and perspective on the industry. Our aim is to support members to develop networks within the profession and provide exposure to the practicalities of a career in governance.

Governance Institute’s 6-month pilot mentor program will be complimentary for graduates who are our members and will be supported by our Fellow members volunteering their time, knowledge and experience.
