WOMeN LIKE ME
STEM SISTERS AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
30th November 2021 3 pm to 5 pm
Women Like Me workshop intends to provide encouragement and support to the recruited ambassadors by demonstrating that women with similar personality traits and aptitudes can succeed in the STEM profession in Victoria, Australia. The program enables STEM Ambassadors to talk confidently to their colleagues and inspire them to pursue careers in STEM.
On November 30th, 2021, we had the formal launch and first ‘Women Like Me’ workshop for our Ambassador Program. The evening began with an introduction to STEM Sisters and a brief outline of the Ambassador Program. Following that, we greeted and presented our stem ambassadors, whose profiles may be seen on our website. Our three panelists, Bhavika Unnadkat, Madhu Bhaskaran, and Stephanie Xoueisomphong, were introduced as the workshop progressed. Our panellists gave up their time to be present at the launch and sparked discussions about the challenges of finding employment in STEM professions as women of colour, as well as how they overcome these challenges to become successful in their careers. Our ambassadors and the audience were given the opportunity to ask the panellists questions and obtain further information. Finally, Winitha Bonney led our workshop activity, which got everyone interested and engaged.
