WASMA launch mentoring program at WAMC YP event

The WA Mining Club will be working closely with the WA School of Mines Alumni (WASMA) in 2020 across a range of projects, with the first being the launch of the WASMA mentoring program.

This mentoring program aligns with WAMC’s shared goals of promoting diversity and inclusion across the mining sector.

The WAMC Young Professionals support the mentoring program, valuing the opportunity to establish networks and gain insights from those who have already walked the path of mining.

The first WAMC Young Professionals event of 2020, ‘Upskilling: Diversifying and Advancing Your Career’ is being held on 4 March at The Flour Factory in Perth from 5.30pm.

In addition to speakers Peter Cook and Keren Paterson, you will also hear from Darren Stralow, Chief Development Officer at Northern Star Resources Limited, who will talk about the WA School of Mines Alumni Mentoring Program which is due to commence in April 2020.

The WASMA mentoring program runs for six months and is a great opportunity for young resources professionals to develop their careers by interacting with experienced mining industry mentors that are targeted to help you achieve your goals.

The project is focused on one-on-one mentoring but also includes group networking events, and is hosted using the Mentorloop software application.

Of course, the WA School of Mines Alumni is always looking for great mentors, so if you have industry experience and would like an opportunity to “give back” by helping others develop their skills, please consider joining the program.

The WA School of Mines Alumni will be taking registrations for its Mentoring Program for commencement in April 2020.

If you would like to hear more about the Program and discuss it with representatives from WASMA, we encourage you to come along to the WAMC Young Professionals Q1 event by booking here or register your interest for the program by emailing mentoring@wasma.com.au.
