Path to Inclusion

Update time! Since we last caught up last month, I’ve spoken at a couple of events and given some interviews. I have a panel coming up today that you can join remotely (it’s free!). In case you missed it, on my research blog, I’ve written some reflections on the March for Science and provided tips to make science events and protests more inclusive.

On International Women’s Day, 8 March 2018, I spoke at Redify, a software company, about strategies to increase the recruitment and promotion of minorities and White women in the tech sector.

On 20 March, ahead of Harmony Day, I was one of the speakers at an internal policy event celebrating multicultural inclusion in the public event. I spoke about how to respond to racism in the workplace and in other public places.

In late March, I gave a couple of interviews on sexual harassment in science. I spoke with The Australian about the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in higher education. I was also featured in the ABC Radio National’s Background Briefing.

Coming up, I’ll be on a panel at the Science Pathways conference today, on 23 April 2018, in Brisbane, from 1pm to 2.30pm AEST. The panel is titled, ‘Making Science Inclusive.

More on the event and how to watch for free online, check out my blog!

And if you check out my blog just before 1pm, you’ll be able to access a description of the slides (don’t tell anyone else but you can see the post slides on my blog from 1pm, shhhhh!).
