A Message from our Presidents
Wow! nearly half way through our 20th year! Where are the days going?
Our May events were extremely well received with our Step Up #1 Building your Job Ready Tool Kit running a second to be continued session as we simply ran out of time in this jam packed session. Our Champagne and Coding and our Life Sciences Professional Development Event - Communicate your Impact in the Real World attracted huge interest and feedback has been great. We will be running another Coding event later in the year so look out for details.
We have some great events coming up in June with the second round of our Mentoring Program fully booked) mid month...this program is extremely popular and if you are interested in supporting us as a Mentor please shoot us an email, we would love to have you on board. We will also host our second Step Up Workshop for 2017 Closing the Gender Pay Gap - Contract Negotiations and the Confidence to Match where speakers from Maurice Blackburn Lawyers will arm you with tools to effectively negotiate your employment contract.

WiT STORIES - SARAH KIRKLAND 'AWARD YOURSELF'
The second of our WiT Stories comes from Sarah Kirkland, creator of Red Cat Science and Winner of our Outstanding Educator Award 2016.
On receiving advice of her nomination for a WiT Award Sarah had a similar response to a lot of our nominees....."really......me? On applying she found the application process beneficial in taking a step back and looking at herself and what she had achieved and not taking herself for granted.
The result.....Sarah became winner of our first Outstanding Educator Award!....
