The Women in Media Fiji Mentoring Project is an exclusive mentoring program teamed with online training to empower women in Fiji’s media to build their careers.

Women in Media Fiji Mentoring Project:
The Project invites women working in mainstream media, to participate in a program tailored specifically to their needs to support and advance their careers by expertly matching mentees of all career levels to an experienced mentor.
Why get involved?
Mentees further develop their skills and benefit from an experienced mentor’s knowledge, guidance and insights.
Mentors get the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to someone’s career by sharing their skills and experience. Mentors also become better leaders and communicators as they guide and help their mentee.
Over the 6-month program, it is advisable for Mentees and Mentors to meet once a month, for 1-hour.
You will need access to a laptop/computer with a camera and a reliable internet connection.
The program is free, but there are limited spots available.
Who can apply?
If you are applying as a Mentee, you must be a Fiji Media Association (FMA) member with full-time employment in a mainstream media organisation.
Mentors do not need to be members of FMA and can be based anywhere in the Indo-Pacific region.
We want to build a bank of mentors for future mentoring - so if you have more than 5-years experience in the industry, we encourage you to sign up as a mentor. This means we’ll have a great group of mentors going into the future, and you may not have to be a mentor every year. We’ll be aiming to only make strong matches.
