Mentoring Women

The Mentoring Women program provides an opportunity for young women interested in economics to connect with female economists at DTF. 

The 2018 program will run between July and October and involve at least 2-3 catch-ups between mentors and students. 

Mentoring sessions between economists and students will be tailored to suit the needs and goals of individual students. This will provide student mentees with access to highly relevant career and educational guidance, and a valuable insight into the diversity of pathways to economics and the possible careers available to them. 

Women who are in their pre-penultimate years of university, or are high school students in year 11 or year 12 are invited to apply. 

Applicants do not need to have studied economics, but will need to demonstrate a genuine interest in the field. 

Applications for the program are open from 16 April and close midnight Sunday 27 May. 

For more information about the program, please contact mentoringwomen@dtf.vic.gov.au
