Women in Conservation Mentoring Project


MPLN Landcare Facilitator Jacqui Salter received a 2019-2020 ‘Our Catchments, Our Communities Leadership Development Grant’ from DELWP to support her to establish a six-month mentoring program for women on the peninsula who are working or studying in the conservation field who would like to further develop their career.

The ‘Women in Conservation Mentoring Program’ runs from October 2019 until May 2020 and provides women with an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the conservation industry and how to get ahead.

Each of the 25 participants have been matched with a mentor with 5+ years’ experience in the industry who has similar strengths. Mentors act as a source of motivation, empowerment, support and information.

The mentoring experience aims to be a mutually beneficial relationship for both mentor and mentee. The program assists women to recognise and develop their strengths, articulate their goals and develop a plan of how they will achieve them, develop their social networks and better understand the conservation industry.


This program is supported through DELWP’s ‘Our Catchments, Our Communities ‘Leadership Development’ grant
