Organiser IMNIS

Organiser of Leaders Forum - Effective Mentoring - SA

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.
