Women in IT Executive Mentoring (WITEM)
WITEM was established in the Australian Government in December 2007, with the aim of accelerating the development of leadership skills for Executive Level 2 women working in ICT.
The Programme forms part of a longer-term strategy to attract and retain women in ICT within government. It combines 1:1 mentoring with cross-organisational learning and facilitated group networking. Since its inception over 160 mentors and mentees from various senior management roles across government have participated in the Programme.
The ten month WITEM Coaching Programme provides female ICT professionals in the Australian Government with access to career development guidance and increased leadership skills. The aim of the programme is to assist Executive Level 1 women working in ICT to increase vocational advancement and enrich their government careers.
