Women in Wine NZ - 2019 Mentoring Programme

Connect Inform Change

Following the huge success of the pilot programme which we ran in 2018 we are delighted to launch the 2019 Women in Wine NZ Mentoring Programme.  Online applications are now open.

Women in Wine NZ was established with the aim of supporting women within the industry develop their careers and reach their full potential.  The mentoring programme is one of the initiatives we have introduced to help women connect and grow.    This is a fantastic opportunity to increase your skills, stretch yourself and widen your network.  Both mentors and mentees found the previous programme extremely beneficial and enjoyable. 

“I found it extremely uplifting and motivating.  It’s a very, very positive scheme”

Jane Hunter, Mentor

“I encourage everyone to give it a go.  You have nothing to lose and would gain an incredible role model and support person”

Haidee Johnson, Mentee

Applications are now open for both mentors and mentees.  Applications close 10 Feb 2019.

The programme aims to match one woman from each of the 9 New Zealand wine regions with an experienced female mentor from the wine industry within their region.  This is subject to the number of applications received and suitable matches available.  In regions where there are multiple applicants we also hope to match additional pairs, creating the opportunity for a maximum of 15 mentor-mentee matches to be made around the country.

The plan is to open up the programme to all New Zealand Winegrowers members in the future.

To apply for this programme the organisation you work for needs to be a New Zealand Winegrowers member.
