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 organised 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, AFRAN aimed to point out aspects where each country can learn from the other in regards to facilitating women’s scientific careers at any level.
