Women in Wine 2020 Mentoring Programme

Connect. Inform. Change.

Following the huge success of our previous two Women in Wine NZ mentoring programmes, we are delighted to launch the 2020 programme. 

Women in Wine NZ supports women to 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 have found the previous programmes extremely beneficial and enjoyable. 

"Becoming a mentor enriched my life on a personal and professional level. It is a great feeling to give back by motivating and encouraging others."

Patricia Miranda-Taylor, Mentor

"I became more positive, more resilient and more confident. My mentor helped me rediscover the best version of me."

Sheenagh Symes, Mentee

Applications for the 2020 WiW Mentoring Programme open on Friday 17th January. Closing date for applications is Sunday 9th February 2020.

The programme is open to women members of all ages and working in all roles within our industry including; sales & marketing, cellar door, general management, operations, logistics, laboratory, administration, viticulture, cellar hand and winemaking.

The programme aims to match one woman 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 more mentor-mentee matches to be made around the country.  There will be a maximum of 10 matches for this programme.

This programme is a Women in Wine initiative and the NZ Winegrowers mentoring programme, open to all members regardless of gender, will run again later in the year.

To apply for this programme, the organisation you work for needs to be a New Zealand Winegrowers member.  If you have a login to the NZW Members site find out more and APPLY HERE.
