Business Chicks Presents
Our Career Files series shares secrets from women who’ve climbed (or sidestepped) the ladder, smashed ceilings and, most importantly, carved out careers that make them fly out of bed on a Monday morning (OK, maybe not fly, but at least not moan and put their head under the doona).
Sponsored by our friends at CSL Limited, we’re bringing you a cracking panel of clever women who love what they do and are committed campaigners for women in STEM.
Free for our members, they’ll share everything from career tips for woman in STEM to how they smashed it in their careers, and their advice for anyone who wants to find a job or career – whether it’s in STEM or another industry – that lights them up. You’ll also get to ask them your questions in a live Q&A.
The STEM superstars
Kylie Walker, CEO, Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering
From tackling anti-vaccination misinformation to convincing the federal government to invest in major new science facilities, Kylie is a powerful changemaker. In her current role at the ATSE, she helps lead crucial national conversations and strategy towards a thriving, healthy and connected Australia supported by technology. She’s seen as an influential voice in promoting women in STEM across Australia and was named in the AFR’s 100 Women of Influence list.
Dr Sarah Pearce, acting chief scientist, CSIRO
Sarah is a member of the CSIRO executive team and an astronomer and space technologist who is helping deepen humanity’s understanding of the universe (quite possibly the coolest job description we’ve ever heard). She has a leading role in the creation of the Square Kilometre Array – the world’s largest radio telescope – and was named NSW Telstra Business Woman of the Year 2020. She’s also a committed campaigner for women in STEM.
Dr Andrea Douglas, senior vice president, Organisation Transformation and External Affairs, CSL Limited
Andrea is a medical researcher driven by the prospect of discovery and, in her current role at CSL, leads its Organisation Transformation Office, which integrates and drives major enterprise-wide organisational design changes that have broad implications to the business across areas of strategy, structure, governance, process and people.
