A powerful personal development and empowerment tool
National Mentoring Program
Students, graduates and emerging architects to mid-career and senior architects around the country are encouraged to get involved and take advantage of the benefits associated with mentoring.
Our mentoring platform, Mentorloop, enables you to easily match with other members of the Institute community.
Utilising online specialist matching software, mentors and mentees will find a carefully curated match across the country or closer to home should that be your preference.
Progress your career
The benefits of mentoring
Mentoring is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool. It is a partnership between two people (mentor and mentee) and is an effective way of helping people to progress in their careers.
For mentees: as you progress in your studies and career, connect with new mentors who can offer support, advice and opportunities. By using the program, you will be empowered to build your very own advisory board, whose experience you can draw on throughout the course of your career.
For mentors: this is a great chance to give back while improving your leadership and management skills by providing advice and feedback to someone who can really use your help.
Whether you are interested in being a mentor, a mentee or both, when you sign up you will be asked a few questions about what you are looking to get out of mentoring which will then help us match you with the right people to support you with your mentoring goals.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com
What users have to say
“I’ve enjoyed connecting with others on the Mentorloop platform, both in ongoing mentorship relationships as well as casual one-off catch-ups.
I find the energy and curiosity brought to these encounters makes our interactions feel meaningful and gives me the sense of contributing to our shared industry.
It has been great to have people reach out with a particular interest in sustainability to be able to share knowledge with others about a topic that is of deep importance to me personally and professionally.”
Madeline Sewall, Director of Houses, Breathe
WHAT USERS HAVE TO SAY
“I’ve had the good fortune of mentoring four mentees over the past couple of years through the Institute’s national mentoring program. It’s been a great way to connect with new people from the profession and help develop their expertise in my area of interest, which is the business of architecture.
I’ve been delighted to discover that I’ve also learned a great deal from my mentees, and am looking forward to continuing as a mentor for as long as I have wisdom to contribute!
I highly recommend getting on board with the program. It’s not a huge commitment, and a great excuse to get out of the studio for lunch and to talk some shop.”
Warwick Mihaly, Principal Architect, Mihaly Slocombe Architects
