Event description

Description

The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering invites IMNIS mentors in the medtech-pharma and energy-minerals sectors to join this Leaders Forum on Effective Mentoring hosted by KPMG.

This will be an open discussion about the benefits, challenges and rewards of mentoring where you’ll hear how experienced mentors have overcome hurdles, motivated their mentees, maintained boundaries, managed expectations and adapted their approach to establish successful mentor-mentee partnerships in a variety of settings. We will also discuss mentoring PhDs in the current funding climate and some of the differences between mentorship and sponsorship.

This will also be an opportunity for IMNIS mentors to connect with each other and our invited guests, and share mentoring strategies and activities, as well as raise and discuss any particular issues they’ve faced in their IMNIS mentoring relationship.

Proceedings will run from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm with registration from 5:30 pm (catering is provided). This is an IMNIS mentors and invited guests only event.

Organiser IMNIS

Organiser of Leaders Forum - Effective Mentoring - QLD

IMNIS is an award-winning industry national initiative of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering.

Working with experts in academia and industry, IMNIS connects motivated PhD students (mentees) in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with outstanding high level industry leaders (mentors).

In a one-year mentoring program, IMNIS mentors and mentees meet in person in a professional setting for one hour each month. State-level networking events hosted by IMNIS allow mentors and mentees to connect more broadly.

IMNIS provides Australia’s future leaders in STEM the opportunity to engage with industry, extend their professional network and learn from an outstanding industry mentor. Mentors are all volunteers generously sharing their time and expertise. IMNIS provides a diverse range of industry professionals the opportunity to engage with academia, share their mentoring skills, and ‘give back’ to the STEM community.

IMNIS has demonstrated success in providing industry mentoring to PhD students in universities around Australia and was recognised with a prestigious B/HERT Award in 2016.
