Women in Construction Mentorship Program
Applications for the 2021 Women in Construction Mentorship Program are now open.
This program provides women in the construction industry with a variety of opportunities to expand upon their technical and industry experience and knowledge, as well as assistance in building a network of subject matter experts and ProQM suppliers.
This 6-month mentorship program will focus on small group mentorship, with only 3 women accepted per intake*. We believe that the size of this program will allow for each mentee for gain the most from their experience, by ensuring that we can tailor our mentorship to best serve and support you.
If successful, you will join us at ProQM for one day each month (over the allocated 6-month period). Each day will focus on a different area of construction, to best ensure that you are obtaining well-rounded knowledge from your experience. Of the 6 days, 5 will be structured by ProQM, and the remaining day is to be decided by you, based on your unique responsibilities and aspirations.
The program will add here to the following structure:
Orientation and introduction to the fundamentals of inspection and supply chain quality
(to be used at any point in your mentorship program) :
A day of your choice. For example, this could be a free inspection from ProQM, or an additional networking opportunity.
There will also be two networking events organised by ProQM to be held on days 1 and 5 of the program.
To apply, please fill out the Women in Construction Mentorship Program Application Form to provide us with some information about yourself and your career goals, and upload a copy of your current resume.
*Please note that to be considered eligible for this mentorship you must hold either an engineering role or a quality assurance role on a current construction project.
This mentorship program will also be most beneficial to women who are up and coming in the construction industry and have less than 5 years of experience.
