"It's never too early in your career progression to support and mentor other women, create space, extend opportunities. As you begin to find your own voice and platform, remember to bring other women along with you. Nā te tipu o te kōhine, ka kitea te purotu o te Māreikura.”
We believe that mentoring assists with finding a rewarding pathway through your life in architecture. Mentoring is also elusive, and it is often difficult to establish a meaningful mentoring relationship when things become formalised. We want to help with supporting 'informal' connections through this online platform, a Resene Mentoring Page dedicated to identifying those looking to help and/or connect.
We also believe that a person can be both a Mentor and Mentee simultaneously, and this page allows for members to be listed in both columns. For example, a newly-registered architect heading into their second decade of their working life may need professional and life guidance in this time of increased invisibility. At the same time, this same architect may be a relevant and valuable mentor for a more recent graduate.
