Career Mentoring Program

The Centre’s Career Mentoring Program aims to offer opportunities to individuals across the Indo-Pacific and in the United States in addition to our community in Australia.

We are committed to building connections and capability with those interested in our region that live or work in locations outside our base in Western Australia and all mentoring appointments are held online. 

Participants work with their mentor on career advice and unique goals or projects and ’mentees’ will be asked to set their own goals and topics of focus.

This program is open to individuals, regardless of location, that are pursuing or are interested in a career in international relations, think tank operations or not-for-profit outreach and community building.
