About the Australian Women in Resource Alliance (AWRA) e-Mentoring Program
Developed for women in the resource, allied and related construction industries, the AWRA e-Mentoring Program is delivered by AMMA and funded by the Australian Government.
Mentoring has been identified as one mechanism to achieve greater participation and advancement of women working in these industries; however remote locations, complex rosters and a shortage of women peers has highlighted a need for an alternative to traditional mentoring programs.
The AWRA e-Mentoring software, consisting of integrated chat, email and online support applications, allows participants access to a tailored mentoring program regardless of location and work schedule.
