The DAMA Mentoring Program aims to create a trusting environment where participants can exchange knowledge, share ideas and constructively evaluate their skill set. 

DAMA’s mentoring program can connect you to Australia’s most senior and prominent data professionals from various industries.

The program includes:

  • One-to-one mentor/mentee sessions (at least 6)
  • Access to DAMA monthly networking events
  • Support from a dedicated DAMA facilitator
  • The program matches participants with a best-fit independent mentor

The mentoring program is currently in trial. During the trial the program is offered free to DAMA members, however there are only three positions. The program runs for 12 months.
