Events and Programs
Monash SEED seeks to equip, educate and engage students to enact positive social change within their worlds. We do this through a range of multi-disciplinary events and programs that allow students to engage directly with social issues. Through this, students are able to develop skills that they will be able to impart in their careers and the wider world.
CSR Networking Night
SEED's annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Networking Night allows students and industry professionals to inquire into the ethical challenges faced by the corporate spheres. The evening provides an opportunity for individuals to participate in invigorating discussions about what it means for businesses to create a positive social impact.
STEM Social Impact Networking Night
Our flagship STEM Social Impact Networking Night provides an opportunity for students to explore social impact within STEM. The event hosts guests from a range of STEM fields, both public and private, and delves into career pathways available to socially-minded students. Ultimately, the event provides an opportunity for students and guests alike to ascertain what social impact in STEM looks like.
Social Impact Entrepreneurship Networking Night (SIENN) is a free networking event for ambitious students who are passionate about making social impact through entrepreneurship. The event epitomises our ongoing commitment towards connecting students with organisations that use innovative thinking in order to solve social impact issues. It presents an opportunity for students to mingle with some of the best and brightest social entrepreneurs and highlight to students the pathways into creating their own impactful start-ups.
A 12-week social impact centred consulting program, SEED's Externship program partners student consultants with social enterprises and allow students to impart tangible change within the social impact spheres. As a project consultant, you will have the opportunity to receive credit points towards your degree through Work-Integrated Learning (WIL), receive mentorship and support from industry professionals and mentors, and gain invaluable opportunities to network and grow your skills
Our Incubator program connects socially-minded students with Melbourne's vibrant social enterprise sphere. Students participate in mentoring sessions conducted by industry professionals to learn, develop and enhance the skills required to create a thriving social enterprise. Using the skills acquired from the workshops, students will then work on building and launching a start-up with an opportunity to also pitch their business idea to a panel of professionals, industry guests and peers to gain valuable feedback of the start-up and network with those in the social impact space.
Global Think Tank
An evolution of SEED's previously run 'World Innovation Challenge', the Global Think Tank (GTT) connects students from around the world to solve social impact issues that are prevalent in each university's locality. Spanning across 7 days, students will be given 4 skill-building workshops to improve their competence in different aspects of entrepreneurship. These workshops will focus on business, social impact and entrepreneurship, and will be facilitated by experts from around the globe.
