“Engineering is all around us, so it’s important that the engineers who create our world are as diverse as the people who are in it.” – Marita Cheng
Marita Cheng is an entrepreneur, engineer, and an inspiring humanitarian. She brings together these capabilities to develop technology solutions that demonstrate how engineers can invent the change they want to see in people’s lives.
As Australia’s modern engineering and technology industries seek to engage professionals whose gender and diversity more closely reflect our society, the 2016 Innovation Lecture is your chance to understand how one person has defied the statisticsto become an agent of innovative change.
Marita is determined to inspire as many people as she can along the way. Founding Robogals in 2008 was Marita’s answer to address the low number of women in engineering and technology at university. Marita doesn’t just think; she acts with empowerment, to change the world in a positive way. With three start-up organisations to her name, Marita has an amazing story to tell.
Please join us on Wednesday 14 September to hear from this inspirational young Australian how engineering truly is creating a better world.
Ticket price includes lecture, drinks and canapés.
