IMNIS: Celebrating Visionary Leadership
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!
IMNIS NATIONAL LAUNCH
IMNIS hit a major milestone with 2018 the first year all IMNIS programs are on offer in every state around Australia. We celebrated with the National Launch of this prestigious award-winning industry mentoring initiative.
IMNIS: Meet the Entrepreneur
There are so many parallels between founding a small business and leading a research program, and an entrepreneurial mindset can facilitate resilience and success in either setting!
IMNIS: The Value of Networking
This event shared insights from senior industry leaders in the MedTech-Pharma and Energy Resources sectors on the importance and benefits of networking. Topics included how to network effectively, how to connect with a range of professionals in different settings, how developing an extensive network can help with career development and how someone can ‘give back’ to their network.
IMNIS: Peer Mentoring
This facilitated peer mentoring session was a terrific opportunity for Mentees in the QLD MedTech-Pharma and Minerals Resources programs to connect more closely and share their thoughts and experiences about the mentoring partnership and the IMNIS initiative overall. Special thanks to METS Ignited for sponsoring this event.
IMNIS: STEM Careers in Industry
At this event, STEM professionals in industry with expertise in different parts of the MedTech-Pharma and Minerals Resources industry sectors shared how they apply their STEM training to lead and excel in a range of rewarding roles. Mentors discussed transferable skills, implicit skills (also called ‘soft’ skills), the value of a professional network and jobs of the future, and shared their top tips for career success.
IMNIS: Pitching to Industry
Four IMNIS mentees in Victoria’s MedTech-Pharma program left their comfort zone and pitched their research in a well-developed “practice pitch” to a panel of outstanding industry leaders who then provided constructive feedback and mentoring on how the pitch could be refined.
IMNIS: Effective Mentoring
Senior industry leaders in the MedTech-Pharma sector discussed the art of mentoring and shared their experiences with their peers. Mentors shared how they have overcome hurdles, motivated their mentees and adapted their approach to establish successful mentor-mentee partnerships.
