The ARI Mentor Program supports emerging industry leaders. Over 6 months ARI Member Teams complete a project-based Challenge under the guidance of an experienced industry Mentor.

Challenges are designed to solve a problem through research, program or solution design that benefit the industry whilst providing opportunities for Mentee’s to develop technical, project and leadership skills.

How does it work?

Mentee Teams get together, meet their Industry Mentors and other participants in the program and network. ARI unveils the challenge task.

Mentee Teams, with the guidance of their Industry Mentor, solve a problem, develop a program or complete a body of work that will advance the industry.

Mentee Teams present their solution to a panel of industry experts at the ARI’s annual conference for a chance to be recognised for the most innovative or effective solution.
