GIRLS CAN’T BE WHAT THEY CAN’T SEE.
REAL WORLD WORKPLACE MENTORING FOR GIRLS
cMEo enables female students to take part in open workplace education and discovery. Engaging young people in real world immersive experiences is crucial to informing their choices, opening their frame of reference and equipping them with the mindsets and skillsets they need for the future workforce.
The girledworld cMEo initiative is our impact mission to give today’s girls access to real-world role models and workplace immersive experiences to support them on their journeys to their future careers. This is a high-impact, life-changing opportunity for girls to help them see what they can be.
Can you commit to just one WORK day in 2019 TO share your skills + career story + let a TEENAGE girl ‘shadow’ you for A day?
Mentorship provides real-time, real-world learning opportunities for girls and enables them to connect with mentors across industries who can guide them, help them define their career and life goals, and realise their potential.
There are two ways to join us - either as a mentee or mentor.

WHY BECOME A cMEO MENTOR?
Mentoring young people can change lives and trajectories. Becoming a cMEo mentor allows you to create impact, share your abundant knowledge and experience and cultivate your leadership skills by developing others.
The time commitment is just ONE DAY of your choosing in 2019, and we will do all the legwork to match a mentee to you.
BENEFITS FOR MENTORS
PAY IT FORWARD
Give a young woman a window to a world she may not otherwise see. Give back in a meaningful way to young people.
SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE
Share your skills, expertise and business learnings with a young person who will directly benefit from that experience
GROW YOUR MENTORSHIP AND MANAGEMENT SKILLS
Practice your own managerial skills and guide your mentee through their career planning and choice-making, plus add mentor to your skillset and CV.
ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF REVERSE MENTORSHIP
Learning always cuts both ways! You will learn as much from your mentee as they do from you - fresh eyes bring fresh perspectives.
SO WHAT’S INVOLVED EXACTLY? AND WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
The cMEo role is about guiding and helping young women to achieve their goals and realise their potential. You’ll help them understand the skills required for your day to day work, open their eyes to your industry and what the real world of work looks like, and involve them in a day in your life to give them access to critical real-world learning so they can make informed decisions about their future careers. There is no pre-work required. You just have to have generosity of knowledge, and a willingness to share one work day with someone else by your side!
I’m KINDA BUSY! WHAT IS THE TOTAL TIME COMMITMENT?
We know your time is precious. Therefore we have designed the cMEo program to be high impact and easy to commit to.
The cMEo pledge requires you to commit to ONE DAY in 2019 (March-December) where you agree to host ONE secondary school girl in your workplace, and let her ‘shadow’ you for the day - learning on the job, and gaining a rare window into the real world of work.
girledworld will provide the matching service based on individual student’s industry interest area and experience (we connect with thousands of students across Australia) and will connect you through girledworld’s online platform.
Prior to the mentorship, we will also provide you with useful tips for how to make the most of your day together.
Simple as that! Small commitment, big impact in the life of a girl!
