​Our LGBTQ+ Mentoring Program aims to:

Provide a supportive network for personal and professional development. This is achieved through creating opportunities for LGBTQ+ professionals to network with each other and foster an embracing culture for all mentees regardless of their type of role or industry.

Applications for the 2022 Pride Professionals Mentoring Program will open in the first week of May. ​Please see the Information Pack for interested mentees and mentors, what you need to do to apply, and important program dates!

Your program fees can either be funded by your organisation, another business, or self-funded. Please note that payment is not required as part of the application process and not made until after acceptance into the program.

For those unable to secure funding there will be a limited number of scholarship places available which can be applied for as part of the application process.

We know that sometimes it can be difficult to speak with your employer about funding development opportunities. If you are needing assistance approaching your workplace to fund your place please get in touch with us and we can assist you with this process.

Participant Experiences

The LGBTQ+ Mentoring program had a profound impact on both my mentee and me. Being specifically designed for people in the LGBTQ+ community, the program provided opportunities to talk openly in a safe environment. I loved giving back to my community and being part of my mentee realising his potential.
I have found the Pride Professionals mentoring program to be a very rewarding experience. The effort taken to match mentors and mentees was very evident and I felt an immediate connection. A very well managed and supported initiative.
I’m so grateful for having the pleasure to take part in the Pride Professionals mentoring program. Everyone who was involved, was so friendly, inclusive and supportive. The pairing with my mentor was spot on, and I received great advice on my career and worked towards my own professional development.
