"The STEM Squad leadership program at Griffith University has been absolutely pivotal in my personal and professional development as an Engineer. It equipped me with the essential communication, leadership and organisational skills that have translated to professional success in the industry. The STEM Squad provided training and experience on how to engage with students and how to be a leader in the promotion of STEM in the community. It is through this program and the guidance of life-long Griffith mentors, that I gained the confidence to take up further extra-curricular roles such as president of the Women in Engineering society and within Engineers Australia. As a STEM Squad member, I was invited to many opportunities for professional networking and facilitated industry engagement and it was these opportunities that ultimately led to securing a role as a graduate engineer at Boeing Australia. Although no longer a student, I cannot speak highly enough of the program to undergraduate students and will continue to be actively involved with it throughout my career, supporting now from an industry perspective.”
