The Western Sydney Wanderers will officially launch the Wanderers W-League Mentoring Program as part of the Club’s month long activities to support Female Football at their Round 24 match against Melbourne City.
As part of the Club’s ongoing commitment to women’s football, the Wanderers W-League Mentoring Program is designed to help players plan for success, build on their personal brand whilst also aiming to support both their mental health and physical well being.
The program is focused on developing bright futures for the Wanderers' elite female players, ensuring that they get the support and confidence to manage their home, work and football life balance as well as introducing them to the right networks that will help broaden their career opportunities. The Program aims to achieve long-term outcomes based on opportunities for elite female players.
The launch will again be hosted by ABC’s voice of women’s football Stephanie Brantz and includes mentors across business, sport and education fields.
