Centre Chief Investigator Prof Nicolle Packer and researcher Dr Annemarie Nadort represented CNBP at the inaugural ‘Women in Life Sciences’ luncheon’, held in Sydney, Friday 11 March 2016.
The event was a celebration of success in the Life Sciences sector with a panel of industry leaders exploring entrepreneurial and leadership opportunities for women.
Discussed were issues relevant to women in the workplace, including targets versus quotas to increase participation rates, as well as thoughts on what is needed to achieve equality.
Attendees also had the opportunity to network with industry colleagues as well as to share their personal stories, challenges and insights.
A sold-out event, it is expected that the luncheon will become a regular annual fixture.
