Mentor program welcomes first cohort

The Turn the Tide Mentor Program 2023 has commenced, welcoming its first cohort of mentors and mentees. The participant selection process ran in May, resulting in 13 successful applications who have now been paired with their mentor. Participants are women from across Australia from a diverse range of roles and sectors of the seafood industry.

The partnerships have been selected based on the mentor’s knowledge and experience correlating to the mentee’s desired development outcomes. Over the next 12 months, the pairs will work through the Program together, sharing skills and learning experiences. While the Mentor is more experienced in their field than the person they are mentoring, the
Program is designed to ensure both share in the growth process and personal development of each other through an exchange of knowledge, skills, and experience.

We will share more details about the experience of participants and their mentors as they
progress through the Program. The Turn the Tide Mentor Program 2024 will open for applications again in February next
