Community for Postgraduate Women
The Ambassador program is designed to give women studying Higher Degrees by Research (Masters and PhD) representative from Women in Engineering and IT in their school within the Faculty. WiEIT has currently 12 ambassadors for all the FEIT schools. Ambassadors have regular fortnightly meetings, chaired by the Postgraduate Engagement Coordinator. The Ambassador program is selective and eligible students will be notified when applications are open.
Let's Talk is designed to allow postgraduate women to have a safe environment where they can discuss and share their ideas with like-minded people.
Date and Time: Let's Talk is currently scheduled 45 minutes before fortnightly coffee hours with the entire WiEIT community. Recent topics have included:
- 'How do you work these days and what keeps you motivated?',
- 'What are your main concerns these days and do you think a buddy-type program would help?'
- 'Gratitude, Joy boosters, and little things that make you happy.'
Resilience Workshop Series
This is a series of workshops collaboratively developed by WiEIT and Professor Olivera Marjanovic. The aim of the workshop is to equip HDR and Postgraduate students with resilience, a skill that is often overlooked in higher education.
Date and Time: Every Friday in May - 10.30 am to 11.30 am
“I am looking forward to helping you to re-discover how amazingly powerful you already are. We will just bring it to the surface and put it in a good use in your own PhD, private lives and your future academic and professional careers. These are conversations for life. Together with you (my academic sisters) and our fantastic WiEIT team, we are now co-creating history! Time will tell where this will take us. So proud to be a part of something so much bigger than any of us individually!” - Professor Olivera Marjanovic
“Bringing your research into spotlight using social media”
Delivered by Dr. Muneera Bano in November 2019, this workshop aims to help students and academic staffs to use social media as a platform to advertise their research.
