Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program for skilled newcomer professionals

Newcomers (migrants and refugees) bring talent, innovation and international expertise to Western Australia, but they need information and networks to succeed.  The Kaleidoscope Mentoring Program (KMP) aims to help skilled newcomer professionals improve their employment potential by matching them with mentors from their industry or occupation.

Mentors guide newcomers on a pathway to find employment within their industry. This benefits both the newcomers and employers in Western Australia by sharing new ideas and boosting business development and cultural diversity in both the workplace and the community.

KMP now invites newcomer professionals to join as mentees by submitting their application for the mentoring cycle running from February to May 2020.

You can read all about the program on the Kaleidoscope website and apply online
