I am currently planning the third night of the Women’s Mentoring Networking Night! Please come along and put it in your diaries so you don’t forget!
Date: Monday 12th May
It’s a bit later this time but that’s okay because there will be an abundance of food to eat to keep you full and drinks to keep your throat lubricated!
Place: Graham Cornish A+ B on the Second Floor of Union house, next to the elevators.
Speaker : Our Next speaker is the Wonderful Yvonne Meng, a well accomplished architect and teaching Associate.
Yvonne studied her Bachelor of Architecture Design at RMIT then went on to do her Masters in Architecture and received her full professional registration last year. During her time at RMIT Yvonne went on exchange to Germany’s Technicshe Universitaet Berlin. Currently, Yvonne works at the City of Melbourne as an architect and at Monash University as a Teaching Associate in history and theory, communications and first year design.

She is also currently a regular guest critic on design studio panels at RMIT and Monash Previously Yvonne Co-chaired VYAG (Victorian Young Architects and Graduates, Victorian branch of a network for young architects that runs part of the Australian Institute of Architects) from 2012- 2013, was on the Institute of Architects Victorian Chapter Council last year (through VYAG) and curated an exhibition for the work of young and emerging architects in Victoria at the Fracture Gallery at Fed Square to give exposure to the younger generation of architects and designers .
Yvonne has amazing professional and academic experience that I encourage everyone to come along and meet her and gain from her wisdom and experience.
It will be a great night to network with women from all fields. Feel free to bring your female/ women friends along.
Hope to see you then!

Hey All our Second Mentoring night is coming up next week.
We still need to confirm a few things but so far we have
Jeanette Hoorn the coordinator of the Gender Studies major, contact for Sexing the Canvas: 10 Works in the NGV and a well researched woman to tie nicely into Rad Sex and Consent week events as well.
Professor Hoorn is an art historian and curator who was educated at The University of New South Wales where she graduated with honours in Australian History in 1978
Professor Hoorn has published eight books and many articles in the fields of Eighteenth and Nineteenth British and French Academic painting; Gender and Orientalism; Darwinian theory in film and painting; Australian Pastoralisms; Australian Indigenous art; Gendering of Modernism in Australian art; Portraiture; Europe’s Civilising Mission in film.
We are hopefully having two speakers~! Will be confirmed soon.
This will be a DRY event (ie no alcohol) but there will be non-alcoholic drinks.
There will be food.
Afterwards I encourage everyone to go to Tsubu for Drinks for the Rad Sex and Consent week event. 🙂
