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 Dr Cathy Foley AO PSM FTSE FAA, Chief Scientist at CSIRO, will share her leadership journey. You will also hear from a panel of IMNIS mentors and mentees about their positive, productive mentoring partnerships. This event also launches the 2020-2021 IMNIS Program in New South Wales.
IMNIS is the flagship industry engagement initiative of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering. ATSE is grateful to our major partner MTPConnect and our collaborative partners BHP, CSL, KPMG, METS Ignited, NERA and Mentorloop, and our foundation supporter AusBiotech, for their ongoing support of this national initiative.
