Creation through collaboration
"When I first approached my manager with the idea of setting up mentoring programs, it was seen as a great idea and something there was a genuine need for. Everyone was open and welcoming, but, more importantly, people were willing to take part to help make it happen. As a result it was relatively easy to set up the programs. I went out and worked with disability partner organisations in the community to find mentees and our own volunteering team were proactive in sourcing the mentors. In the end this ambitious project only took six weeks from concept to piloting the programs. That’s what happens when you have positive collaboration between many areas of CommBank."
