We design and develop programs specifically designed to increase the retention of, and build the capacity and capability of talent, especially female talent, within an industry sector.

Current Programs

Our industry-based mentoring programs include:

Dell’s Women in IT Executive Mentoring (WITEM)

The WITEM program is an initiative of Dell. It builds cross-organisational mentoring partnerships between CEOs, CIOs and women working in the IT industry who have been identified as capable of taking the next step into executive ranks. Twelve programs have already been launched nationally, five of which are in the Australian Public Service. In recognition of its impact on women in ICT, WITEM won the“Outstanding Initiative/Result for the Advancement of Women” at the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA) 2008 Business Achievement Awards.

Constructive Mentoring for Women in Building and Construction

Peak industry groups Master Builders Association of NSW, the Australian Institute of Architects (NSW Chapter) and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) NSW Chapter united to instigate a national women’s mentoring program for the Building, Construction and Design Industry.

Orijen was selected as the provider, in recognition of our proven  record in providing successful mentoring programs for women. Using groundbreaking and industry-specific online matching tools, more than 150 mentoring pairs across the country were formed and developed strong mentoring partnerships.
