Empowering Women in Surf Lifesaving: Cohort 5 of the Women’s Mentoring Program Announced
Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
Lifesaving. The program has proven to be a resounding success and with Cohort 4 having just concluded, we are thrilled to announce the forthcoming Cohort 5.

Since commencing in June 2020, the program has seen 192 women graduate, equally divided as mentors and mentees. It successfully bridges generational divides, fostering valuable mentor-mentee relationships for women of all ages. The program creates a cycle of success, as graduated mentees return as mentors to inspire the next generation.

McCarthy Mentoring, one of the program sponsor’s, provides an online leadership development platform accessible by mentors and mentees for the 12 months of the program.

The program’s influence has already been felt with participants taking on new leadership challenges, both within Surf Life Saving and beyond. There has already been a significant increase in the number of women holding senior leadership roles within the Surf Life Saving movement.

Testimonials from program participants highlight growth in self-confidence, improved communication skills, effective goal-setting, and enhanced leadership, and change management abilities.

As a mentor from Cohort 4 says, “The program removes barriers, providing the opportunity for like-minded women to come together and share their experience and personal and professional learnings. Supported by specially curated resources and led by a small and passionate group of SLSA female leaders, this program has the potential to create an enriching and life changing experience for those willing to commit to the program.”

We congratulate cohort 4 on their achievement and we wish the very best of success to cohort 5!
