Perhaps the single quality that differentiates a solid from a highly successful career is opportunity awareness. Achievers are over-represented among the ranks of those who are not only able to spot opportunities that others miss, they act on those opportunities where others prevaricate or decline.
Opportunities are generally gifted by other people. A new role, responsibility, a loan, grant or business opportunity may come to those who invest their time in connecting with the right network.
To encourage our STEM women of colour community to increase their opportunity awareness, we have created a LinkedIn Group to share STEM related opportunities in Australia.
STEM Sisters acknowledges, recognises and respects the Ancestors, Elders and families of the Boonwurrung, Waddawurrung and Wurundjeri of the Kulin who are the traditional owners of land in Victoria.
