Mentoring for Dairy Innovation


Career mentoring can provide some of the most sought-after attributes that employers look for as the mentee gains industry awareness and firsthand knowledge of the challenges of life in the workforce. While the mentor gains a chance for self and career reflection. The relationship is based upon encouragement, constructive feedback, openness, mutual trust, respect and a willingness to learn and share. A mentor provides support, a sounding board, knowledge, encouragement, guidance, and constructive feedback to the mentee by developing a genuine interest in the growth of their abilities and talents.

Each intake of the DairyBio and DairyFeedbase mentoring program will run for 18 months; with a six month overlap of the preceding and succeeding mentoring group. The mentoring coordinator will match mentees with a suitable mentor and support the principles of life-long learning and knowledge sharing that underpins the program.
