TasNetworks is committed to keeping it’s people safe and well and with the knowledge that one in five Australians experience mental illness, the decision was made to sponsor The Mind Games. The Mind Games is a race for research to raise money and awareness for mental health research. The event was a huge success and those lucky enough to participate in the day had a fantastic time! The total amount raised for this very worthwhile cause in 2019 was $70,000 and TasNetworks has proudly signed on to be the naming rights sponsor of The Mind Games in 2020.
The graduate cohort run the STEAM project; a TasNetworks funded community initiative aiming to provide opportunities and encourage interest and pathways in the STEM disciplines. Through the STEAM project the graduate’s partner with schools, organisations, and large scale events to deliver interactive science, engineering, arts and maths based activities – you may have seen us before at Festival of Bright Ideas or AgFest!
From 2020 STEAM will also be commencing our Mentoring Women in Engineering initiative to address the current gap in gender diversity within engineering (and the broader STEM areas), by providing support and encouragement to young women who may be interested in, or considering a career in engineering. The program will see participating students partnered with current TasNetworks graduates as mentors; to provide them with support and exposure to what a career in engineering could look like.
