Queer Careers - STEM Out

Out for Australia, in partnership with Engineers Australia, warmly invites you to the first installment of Queer Careers!

This event series tackles issues that LGBTIQ+ people face in the workplace, and focuses on helping everyone transition from being out and proud on campus to being their confident, authentic selves in workplaces that champion diversity.

For our first installment of Queer Careers, we are focusing on being LGBTIQ+ in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields. STEM careers have traditionally been challenging for queer and non-binary professionals, but things are slowly changing as more workplaces embrace diversity, equity and inclusion daily.

‘Queer Careers: STEM OUT!’ is a panel discussion on the unique experiences, motivations and successes that Queer STEM professionals, academics and students have shared.

Drinks and canapes will be provided, and there will be opportunities to network with a diverse range of STEM and non-STEM professionals, organisations and students.

Out for Australia greatly appreciates the support of Engineers Australia for hosting the event.

Master Classes and Career Cross Roads - YEAQ

Hitting a career crossroad is often a time of uncertainty. You may ask yourself: What’s next? Is there value in complete a Master’s, MBA or alternative post-grad study?

This event is tailored toward young engineers who are curious as to their next career step, and we hope to equip you with the tools needed to make these decisions in a well-educated manner.

This is your chance to hear from a diverse range of panellists who speak from their real-world experience of the pros and cons of undertaking further study, and where this has taken them. 

You’ll also hear first-hand from professionals who have completed their post-graduate study, and who will share their lessons and stories. 

Additionally, you will also get the opportunity to network with University representatives after the panel discussions and immediately pursue what you’ve learned from the night. This dedicated networking time will also feature lightly catered food and refreshments.
