Sponsorship opportunities

The AVA Graduate Mentoring Program is supported by the AVA and our kind sponsors, and as such is free for mentees and mentors.

This is an opportunity to position your company as a trusted partner for Australian veterinarians and to create a lasting relationship of trust, respect and success. Mentoring program participants usually end the program with strong positive feelings towards not only their mentor / mentee but also towards the supporting organisations. Many value the experience as one of the best they’ve ever had.

Other benefits of sponsoring the program include:
  • Increased market leadership and corporate social responsibililty presence
  • Networking opportunities with AVA members and volunteers
  • Great understanding of the professional needs of veterinarians 
  • Education for your veterinary staff - opportunity to participate in mentor training 
  • Brand exposure in web advertising, emails, social media and face to face events 
  • Cultivating a mentally healthy, happy veterinary workforce

If you wish to be a part of this very important AVA initiative, please contact the AVA to discuss how sponsoring the program can have a real impact on the future of the profession.

Our sponsors

Guild Insurance and GuildSuper

Guild Insurance and GuildSuper are proud to be able to sponsor the AVA Graduate Mentoring program. Throughout our 20 year partnership with the AVA, we’ve worked hard with the AVA to ensure that we provide vets with the most appropriate protection and support for the entirety of their career. Supporting graduates as they begin that career is a fantastic way for us to really deliver on that goal.

The benefit of partnering with the AVA for such a long time is that as the profession changes, we are in the box seat to see these changes eventuate, and get real insight as to what that means for veterinarians at all stages of their career. We look forward to continuing to support this fantastic initiative, and see the mentees’ careers develop, and hopefully find themselves in the position to help us continue to support the profession for years to come.
