No matter where you are in your STEM Career, YOU BELONG HERE!

Hi, my name is Kim Ellis Hayes and I am almost, always, the only woman in the room at work. I have had an amazing career and am frequently asked to share my experiences. 

So many women in the STEM community have asked me to spend time to unpack how I managed kids, a career and now, training for spaceflight while leading a next generation space workforce education program.    I have to be honest, for much of my career, I have had to propel myself forwards without much support. It was sometimes really lonely and hard to keep going. Of course some places have mentoring programs (which are great - by the way) and there are many amazing coaches who can help you to get to the next level. 

How do you find a circle of 'like minded people' who you can meetup with and connect? People who can help each other to win with the everyday stuff that gets in the way of us accelerating our careers. 


  That's why I have created this  Launchpad to accelerate your success by providing you with the support you need!

Join today and allow us to give you the career promotion education, opportunities, resources, and support you need to find incredible career success easier than you ever thought possible.

Kim G Ellis Hayes is your Spaceflight Director for this Community!

At the end of 2008, just as the Global Financial Crisis was hitting, Kim's job as a specialised member of the global technology team, research scientist was made redundant.  The mining company CEO had made a half a billion dollar bid for a rival mining company and failed, losing half a billion dollars in the process.  That meant the company had to  restructure to whittle down the cash going out for employees (just in time for Christmas!) and let 300 staff go.   Facing such a huge change was terrifying but Kim saw it as an opportunity to live the life of her dreams. 

Since then, Kim Ellis Hayes has achieved and experienced more than she ever could have imagined in her wildest dreams. Daydreaming of working in the Space Industry her whole life, since losing her job Kim has received scholarships, sponsorships, Government and professional industry association awards to do exactly that and is now a lawyer, an expert in Space and International Law, science and technology and completed her Space Flight Training in 2022. 

An award winning STEM Professional, Kim won the;

  • A22 Airspace Awards, Women in Aviation/Aerospace, Outstanding Achievement Award,
  • Highly Commended Award, AMCHAM Global Alliance, Space,
  • ASCEND Diverse Dozen Leadership Award supported by Privateer Space
  • Vice-Chancellor’s Awards Swinburne Empowering the Next Gen via Space Station Experimentation.

Kim is inviting you to join her as she continues to reach for the Stars!
