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 join forces to foster a culture of innovation and collaboration through mentoring. Together, they are developing a new generation of PhD graduates who can engage with industry, kick-start collaborations, understand their career options, and network and transition with confidence across professional sectors.

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

Our Keynote Speaker Erica Smyth AC FTSE, accomplished Board Chair and Director within the energy and minerals sector, will share her leadership journey. Ms Smyth is a professional Company Director with more than 20 years experience on minerals, energy, science education and research boards. She is also a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering. Ms Smyth will speak to her experiences as a leader and share what she considers the key attributes of visionary leadership in Australia and beyond. You will also hear from a panel of 2018-19 mentors and mentees about their positive, productive mentoring partnerships. This event also launches the 2019-2020 IMNIS Programs in Western Australia.

This event will be held on Monday, 29th July between 7:30am-9:30am. Registration opens at 7:30am (coffee/tea and a light breakfast will be available), proceedings begin at 8:00am and the event closes at 9:30 am. We will have a professional photographer on-site, so be sure to get a photo with our speakers, your colleagues and your mentor/mentee. For catering purposes, please RSVP by registering as soon as possible. Please indicate if you have any dietary requirements or childcare needs.

This event is for all participating mentors and mentees, and alumni of the IMNIS programs in Western Australia. Other STEM students, early-career researchers and industry professionals are also welcome to attend. Registration is essential.
