Meet your Mentors

Throughout the year, the Principal invites to the college a number of academics from UNSW and other Australian and international institutions and other notable personalities.  The main aim of these events is to expose the residents to role models, women and men who in their own way are ‘leaders’ in their endeavours.  It is also a way for them to meet women, in particular, who have managed a good work-family balance, and to explore how they got where they are now.

 These events take any of two formats:

    • Formal Dinners – held 2-3 times a semester
  • Informal discussions followed by  light refreshments
