Protégé, Micro Focus partner to launch Sydney inaugural mentoring program


Mentoring company Protégé has teamed up with UK-based technology vendor Micro Focus to launch its inaugural mentoring program in Sydney aimed at supporting the advancement of women in leadership and to help empower women to be leaders.

Micro Focus says Protégé has teamed up with it because of the company’s passion in the advancement of women leaders and “interest in supporting their further development, retention and inclusion in the workplace, and in the broader Australian community”.

“We know how important mentoring is for personal and career advancement, yet many organisations do not have the right resources to run in-house mentoring programs,” said Sara Evans, Marketing Director, Asia Pacific & Japan at Micro Focus.

“Signing up to the Protégé Sydney Women Leaders 2020 Mentoring Program is a very actionable way to drive our diversity and inclusion initiatives. Micro Focus is extremely proud to be a part of this program with Protégé, particularly ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8.”

“This is a powerful and transformational journey for both mentors and mentees. It is designed around ‘best-in-class’ mentoring practices, with the added advantage of supporting the cohort via interactive development workshops and networking events,” said Louise Tagliante, Founder, Protégé.

“It encourages new thinking, new ways of being and moving into the unknown, while being fully supported by not only your mentor, but by the entire mentoring community that is created throughout the year.”

Protégé says that, through the program, mentees will expand their leadership and business skills plus focus on enhancing their self-confidence to speak up and to speak out, and build resilience. In addition, they will have opportunities to build a strong and supportive network of both peers and senior executives who will be able to give them insights and guidance on how to best manage both personal and business challenges.

“Mentors will become more practised at mentoring and developing women from a broad range of industries and sectors, while opening the door to more advanced leadership opportunities and giving back to the community,” Protégé concluded.

Applications for both mentors and mentees close on 12 March, 2020.
