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
Time: 6pm-8pm

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.

Since 2012 Yvonne has also been the creative director of an event PROCESS, a once a month public lecture series about architecture, design and urbanism. 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!

So These are the things that need to be taking in consideration with money. We are doing our best to make sure we can cover as much as possible- particularly looking at subsidising rego, flights and accommodation. We will let you know as more info comes in!

– Rego
– Accommodation
– food (only one meal is provided at ECU)
– Public Transport; if you have a health care card or your parents have one and you are listed as a dependent PLEASE BRING THIS TO PERTH it will cost the cost of public transport in perth
– Taxi Fares
-Flights

The Union usually pays for registration so this is our first priority.
We are also trying to subsidise flights and accommodation.

We will need to know by Thursday 17th April if you are coming to nowsa if you wish to have us book flights for you so we can all go as a collective. When you email us please let us know if you have any accessibility requirements.
