About TFTC

TFTC is an award-winning Defence Industry collaboration providing women working within the Defence Industry the opportunity to work with a senior Defence Industry mentor. Over 12 months, they develop skills and create a network designed to enhance the capability of the Defence Sector in Australia.

As a structured mentoring program, mentors and mentees are matched based on their goals, objectives and professional backgrounds.

Throughout 12 months, pairs meet monthly to discuss and plan how to actualise their goals. Participants are provided with an induction training session and will be supported throughout the year with facilitated group sessions to encourage their success.

Leading Well, an expert in leadership, business coaching and mentoring programs, delivers the program training and facilitated sessions.

Kinexus, a founder of the TFTC, administer the program.
