Nominations for the 2020 WITEM program now open - closing Tuesday 17th March

The Women in IT Executive Mentoring (WITEM) program provides an opportunity for EL2 women working in digital roles to reach their full potential as leaders. Mentors provide mentees with valuable career-based developmental guidance, professional relationships, and new perspectives in digital and ICT. I have been a mentor in the program for many years and have experienced first-hand the important role it plays in supporting diversity and inclusion in digital and ICT.

We are seeking nominations for high-performing SES mentors and talented EL2 mentees who work in digital and ICT roles in government to participate in the Women in IT Executive Mentoring (WITEM) program. Potential participants may be working in digital roles outside IT areas, such as those designing and operating digital government services.

Our website provides further information on the program and how to nominate. Mentors and mentees should submit their nomination by Tuesday 17 March 2020 . If you have any questions, please email us at capability@dta.gov.au.
