PACE Mentoring and Stepping Into Internship programs

PACE Mentoring (or Positive Action towards Career Engagement) connects jobseekers with disability to mentors from leading Australian businesses.The program is a four-month commitment between April and August or August and November. Mentors and mentees meet approximately eight times during the four months. During the program, the mentee and mentor will set goals and desired outcomes, discuss experiences, skills, and career pathways.

The Stepping Into Internship program is a national initiative that introduces skilled and talented university students with disability to a business. It will support you to cultivate an inclusive and diverse workplace culture.Managers and supervisors who have taken part in the program are impressed by the high calibre of the students and tell us that the program supports their colleagues to improve their disability confidence.
