International Women's Day is fast approaching on the 8th March 2021!
In the spirit of the #womenlead theme, this year’s IWD event on the University’s ON24 Platform is a joint celebration for students and staff. Check out the UN International Women's Day website for more information about the theme.
Panel discussion, 11am - 12pm
Hosted by Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Industry Engagement, Professor Sue Dodds, this event is an opportunity for staff and students to hear from a diverse range of voices:
- Professor John Dewar, Vice-Chancellor, La Trobe University.
- Dr Mishel McMahon, Lecturer in Social Work and Co-ordinator of Victorian Aboriginal Research Accord Project at VACHHO.
- Cecilia Milagro Bravo Huaynates, inaugural recipient of the Aiia Maasarwe Research Scholarship.
- Jenna Boyd, Founding Board Director of the La Trobe Student Association.
Panellists will reflect on what International Women’s Day means to them and how we can all contribute to a more gender equal and inclusive University.
While IWD celebrates women in all their diversity, gender equality is, of course, meaningful for everyone. We encourage staff and students of all genders to attend this event.
