Rise To Success – Career Development Mentoring Programme
Underemployment is a significant challenge for disabled people in New Zealand.
"Rise to Success" is an empowering mentorship programme offered by the New Zealand Disability Employers Network that brings together disabled professionals and experienced mentors to foster mutual growth and success.
Mentors have the opportunity to share their knowledge, expertise, and insights, while also gaining a deeper understanding of disability and inclusivity in the workplace. They can develop their leadership and mentoring skills, expand their networks, and make a meaningful impact in the lives of disabled professionals.
Mentees, on the other hand, gain access to invaluable guidance, support, and mentorship from experienced professionals who understand the unique challenges and opportunities of the disability community. They can receive personalised career advice, professional development opportunities, and guidance on navigating workplace challenges, all with the goal of advancing their careers and achieving their full potential.
With a focus on mutual learning, empowerment, and inclusivity, "Rise to Success" is a dynamic programme that benefits both mentors and mentees, fostering a supportive community that inspires growth, resilience, and success for disabled professionals in New Zealand.
Coming August 2023
We are busy developing this programme for launch at our Disability Inclusive Pathways Conference this year.
