The XX Effect: Securing Australia’s health and economy

The University of Queensland is hosting an International Women’s Day 2020 breakfast featuring our inspiring UQ staff and alumnae who are leading the charge to ensure a diverse collective of voices shape the future of health and environmental sciences globally.

To secure Australia’s health and economy into the future, the talents of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) are vital.

In recognising the significance of International Women’s Day 2020 commitment to an equal world that is an enabled world, we have brought together a collective of STEMM specialists to celebrate their achievements and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. What would you share with your younger self once you have traversed the STEMM pipeline?

The Sustainable Minerals Institute's own Dr Anita Parbhakar-Fox will bring an engineer's perspective to the event, joining the Moderator Dr Deanne Gibson CSC OAM, and fellow panellists Professor Kate Schroder, Dr Sue Keay, Professor Tamara Davis, and Dr Aideen McInerney-Leo.

Please join us at this inspirational event and we can together, celebrate women’s achievements in STEMM, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality.
