PAR-Alan Gilbert-121 (Theatre 3)

Organised by:
Commerce Students Society

Sometimes, we get so bogged down in lectures, tutes, mid sems and exams that we forget the bigger picture. We’re bombarded with information about internships, programs and graduate opportunities that can be our next steps after uni – but these aren’t the only options available. Every social enterprise needs an accountant, a dynamic marketing team and an economist’s insight into market trends. It might even take someone with business acumen to be able to get their entrepreneurial dream off the ground.

Studying a business degree doesn’t mean that you have to work in the for-profit world. Catalysing Curiosity is a free event all about celebrating alternative pathways available beyond the scope of the BCOM degree and a common linear career trajectory. We will introduce to you three speakers that actively work to make a social impact in their field. Their organisations have a clear mission and a strong cause which drives progress to solve pertinent issues.
- Good Business Matters - Marketing firm that specialises in campaign creation for businesses working to achieve social impact.
- Dr Ben Neville - Senior lecturer in the Department of marketing management. Key research in business ethics and corporate social responsibility.
- Asylum Seeker Resource Centre – An organisation well known for advocacy and support of people seeking asylum in Australia.

This night is about opening our eyes to the pathways out there to craft a career for a cause! In its second year, Catalysing Curiosity is a growing event for the CSS, and received incredible feedback last year. It’s a busy time of year, but taking time out of your week to learn about ways that you can make an impact is a worthwhile investment in yours, and the worlds’ future.

The event will run from 5:30pm till 7:30pm on the 6th October. Food and Beverages (inc. alcohol) will be provided afterwards for a networking style session, where you can learn more from the speakers.

See you there!
