Event description

Description

Visionary leadership can drive transformational change across an entire sector. Visionary leaders inspire, empower, enthuse and respect. They work with you to make change happen. This is what the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) is all about!

With a shared sense of purpose and desire for change, leaders across Australia’s industry and academic STEM sectors joined forces to foster a culture of innovation and collaboration through mentoring. The goal is to develop a new generation of industry-savvy PhD graduates who can engage with industry, kick-start collaborations, understand their career options, network and transition with confidence across professional sectors.

This event celebrates their vision, their leadership, their drive and importantly, their bold commitment to the professional development of tomorrow’s STEM leaders and to creating a better future for all of us.

Our Keynote Speaker Professor Jane Latimer (Deputy Director of The Institute for Musculoskeletal Health at The University of Sydney, Director of Strategy and Engagement, at Elizabeth Broderick and Co.) will share her leadership journey. You will also hear from a panel of 2017 mentors and mentees about their positive, productive mentoring partnerships.

A light breakfast will be served Wednesday, 25 July at 7:30 am at KPMG. The event will conclude at 9:30 am. We will have a professional photographer on-site, so be sure to get a pic with our speakers and your colleagues. For catering purposes, please RSVP by registering as soon as possible. Please indicate if you have any dietary requirements.

ATSE gratefully acknowledges funding and tremendous support for IMNIS from the industry growth centres MTPConnect, METS Ignited and NERA, consortium partners AusBiotech and Mentorloop, as well as sponsors CSL, KPMG and Bellberry. IMNIS thanks all of our member organisations, partners, sponsors and supporters for their collaboration and support. These organisations demonstrate visionary leadership in developing Australia's next generation of STEM leaders.

Dr Jane Latimer is Professor and Deputy Director of The Institute for Musculoskeletal Health in the Sydney School of Public Health at The University of Sydney. She is also Director, Strategy and Engagement, at Elizabeth Broderick and Co., an organization working within Australia and globally to drive change in the areas of gender equality, diversity and cultural renewal. These dual roles provide a unique opportunity to take insights from visionary corporate leaders, who are building the organisations of the future, and use them to grow the vision and careers of academic STEM leaders, and vice versa. Jane’s own research career has focused on the management of musculoskeletal disease, but she has also used her research expertise to impact an area she cares deeply about, that of Indigenous health. More recently she collaborated with Indigenous leaders in remote Australia to address the challenge of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). For this work she brought together Aboriginal communities, national and international researchers, FASD clinical experts, governments, philanthropists, the Australian Human Rights Commission, advertising agencies, corporate Australia and filmmakers. Jane’s talk will share some of her career journey and the lessons learnt along the way about what makes a visionary STEMM leader.
