Fast-track your career and walk away with an existing network with the UDIA Mentoring Program – Designed for Property Industry Professionals

In the guided group mentoring sessions you will explore a range of relevant topics with a senior industry professional. Participants will have the opportunity to broaden industry networks as well as learn new skills and gain the knowledge required to progress as tomorrow’s leaders.

The UDIA has brought together an exemplary group of senior professionals to volunteer as mentors.

The peer mentoring format allows participants to benefit from the knowledge of the mentor but also the 6-8 other early career professionals.

Who is it for?
We invite early career professionals from across all disciplines and backgrounds with at least 2 years of experience in the property industry who have progressed into lower and middle management. Participants do not need to be UDIA members.

What can you expect?
The broad objective of the program is to empower and build the confidence, knowledge and skills of early career professionals. More specifically, the objectives are:
  • To create connections in the industry, build relationships and networks
  • To develop leadership skills, and build confidence in the capacity of mentees
  • To help participants develop their career goals
  • To promote connections between senior leaders in the industry and early career professionals
  • To share knowledge between participants and provide a platform for mentees to discuss barriers, experience gaps, career concerns and opportunities for progression

Each mentoring group will select from a range of program topics and learning tools to tailor the 6 month program to suit group objectives.

In short, the program is a great opportunity to establish new friends and connections, share experiences and explore pathways and techniques to power up your career.

How long does it take?
Registrations for the UDIA mentoring program close on Thursday 18 July. The program will kick off at the launch event in July and concludes at the closing event in December. After the launch event, the program will deliver 6 × 90 minute group sessions held over 6 months, which are scheduled with your Mentor.
