Description

CSIRO's Data61 and Ribit invites you to ‘Shine & Rise’ - our bright and buzzy speed-mentoring breakfast on International Women’s Day to connect tertiary women students to inspirational innovation leaders.

We're excited to announce that Dr Cathy Foley, CSIRO’s Chief Scientist, will be our keynote speaker and join us during our annual breakfast event.

What's in it for employers:
Do you remember your first role model, mentor or professional inspiration? Here's a chance to be that person for a STEAM student embarking on their first career steps and pay it forward. In exchange for 2hrs of your time, you'll get the chance to give back and potentially identify any early stars for your own business!

The format is 'speed mentoring' - it's a fun and relaxed format in a supportive environment.

What's in it for students:
Our annual Shine & Rise event on International Women’s Day is the ideal opportunity to find a mentor to guide your personal development and find your career path.
