Event description

Description

What is it like to be a woman in science? Do female scientists experience gender bias? If so, what does it look like and what keeps female scientists motivated? At this special Science in the Pub-hosted FoBi event, we interview five female scientists who have taken very different paths, encountered sometimes-surprising obstacles, and ended up in diverse and fascinating careers. Each scientist will speak briefly about her research, and will then be interviewed about her challenges, passions, and any tips she can provide to other current or aspiring female scientists. Join us for a fun and inspiring journey through the world of five women of science.

Dr. Dianne Nicol - former researcher, now lawyer & Director of the Centre for Law and Genetics at UTas
