Mentoring in Defence

Due to the diverse and unique nature of the Defence environment and operations, there is no one-size fits all approach to mentoring. Many successful mentoring relationships are already taking place across Defence, formally and informally.

While some Defence Groups and Services have specific programs and initiatives, mentoring in Defence is seen as a natural avenue to facilitate relationships so that employees with a broad range of skills, technical expertise and personal attributes, can share advice and knowledge to support and guide less experienced employees in a mutually beneficial way.

DIA is currently undergoing work within each of the Defence Groups and Services mentoring programs to ensure they are culturally appropriate for Indigenous men and women from the ADF and the APS.
