WinS (Women in STEM) session

Tuesday, 25 May 2021 9:30 AM-10:00 AM

Take some time out of your crazy, busy schedule for some personal development! These sessions are designed to be short and engaging, and provide you with opportunities to meet new people and build confidence in your abilities and in talking about your achievements – just a little bit of fun to start your Tuesday. Opportunities for Women in STEM in Australia are also curated and distributed to the group. The more the merrier, so feel free to forward the invitation to other Women in STEM so we can all celebrate their WinS together. 😊 Contact Kylie to join the list.
