Event description

Description

Does gender inequality still exist in the sciences? True, women no longer have to masquerade as men to get a scientific paper published, but why do so many fields of science remain dominated by men?

At this special Science in the Pub event, we hear from five female scientists who have taken different paths, encountered sometimes-surprising obstacles, and ended up in diverse and fascinating careers. Each scientist will speak briefly about her passions, her failures, and her eventual climb to scientific success.

With presenters:

Dr. Anu Verma- former researcher, now senior science teacher at Fahan School


Dr. Angela Crean - animal reproduction specialist and current L'Oreal Women in Science fellow


Dr. Rosalie Woodruff - Epidemiologist turned Greens politician


Dr. Lila Landowski - Neuroscientist, science communicator and science advocate

One more presenter TBA

Join us for a fun and inspiring look at the world through the eyes of five women of science. And hang around afterwards to meet the Women of Science themselves for a chat at the BeakerStreeat@TMAG Pop-up Science Bar! Like all SciPub events, this one is FREE and open to the public, so bring your friends! Doors will open for the event at 6pm, speakers will start at 6:15 so you have plenty of time to grab a drink before settling in for some Science Stories!

BeakerStreet@TMAG is a pop-up science bar at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, 18-20 August - admission is free. Join us during the second weekend of National Science Week for three packed nights of intriguing short talks and hands-on workshops, live music, SCINEMA short films, live anatomical body painting, a science photography exhibition, storytelling, have a beer with a scientist, delicious local food and Tassie tipples, heaters and hot drinks in the courtyard, and much more!

BeakerStreet@TMAG is free and open to the public but designed for an adult audience. Under-18s must be accompanied by an adult. Registration for talks is not required and does not guarantee a seat, but will be a great help to us (we're scientists and we like numbers). Registration for workshops is essential.
