Department of Finance Secretary, Jane Halton AO PSM, today attended the launch of the 2016 Women in IT Executive Mentoring (WITEM) Program, the 10th to be held in Canberra for the Australian Government.

The WITEM program provides female Executive Level 2 ICT professionals in the Australian Government with access to career development guidance and proven leadership skills through a mentor relationship with a senior ICT professional. Since 2007, the Department of Finance has partnered with Dell™ to deliver the WITEM program.

WITEM has provided a springboard to over 120 Australian Government mentees since its inception and this year, 42 people will participate in the Whole‑of‑Government mentoring program.

Ms Halton commented “As the public sector responds to the challenges of the digital revolution, programs like WITEM have never been more relevant because having strong ICT leaders has never been more important. I have been lucky enough to have had some exceptional mentors, as well as to mentor some exceptional people, so I am confident that participating in WITEM will be a rewarding experience and one that will enrich your Australian Government career”.

“I would like to congratulate those selected to participate and thank the mentors for taking part in this important program.”
