The sky's no limit: women in health science

Supporting gender equity and equal career opportunities in science is a commitment for both Australia and France. In the context of the Australian Science week, the AFRAN community on health and medical sciences is organising an event dedicated to discuss the similarities and differences in challenges encountered by women in their scientific careers in Australia and in France, where the structure and organisation of the research and funding landscapes are significantly different. Through this event, the French-Australian Association for Research and Innovation aims to point out aspects where each country can learn from the other in regards to facilitating women’s scientific careers at any level.

Join us for this event to hear about top female researchers, engineer and astronaut! The discussion will be followed by a cocktail and a film screening on Marie Curie's life.

Listen to the interviews of Prof Frédéric Hollande, organiser of this event, and of the panelist Dr Madge Martin on SBS Radio

This event is part of the Global Health Film Festival in Australia
