In an Australia and New Zealand wide first the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), in collaboration with Emberin, has launched a new mentoring program for women working in the food, beverage, manufacturing and packaging industries. 
 
Ignite Packaging is a powerful, self-paced development program that transforms women professionally and personally. 
 
The mentoring program has a unique and proven learning format and the course is manageable, sustained and practical.
 
The program enables participants to master new skills and techniques over a 12-week period that allows them to create new patterns of behaviour, increased self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities. 
 
They will also have access to fortnightly webinars with guest speakers from within our industry.
 
More than 14,000 women in other industries have completed the program.
 
The AIP has now made the program available for mentoring women in the packaging industry.
 
Ignite Packaging is a powerful tool for developing a woman’s talents and enhancing their career prospects.
 
Importantly, Ignite Packaging delivers a number of side-benefits to organisations including stronger engagement levels and generally a significantly improved culture. Additionally, the program provides organisations with a powerful employee brand and employee benefit tool – helping them attract and retain females in their workforce.
 
The AIP believes there is a strong business case for attracting and retaining women across the packaging industry and Ignite Packaging addresses many of the obstacles experienced by women in a predominately male workforce. 
 
The pilot program aims to have all states represented as well as New Zealand participants. 
 
Applications close on July 25.
 
The AIP has invited companies sponsor two female participants in the Ignite Packaging pilot program.
