Dear ASC-ers

On Thursday, March 1, Australian Science Communicators (SE QLD branch) are holding a special event inspired by the UN International Women and Girls in Science Day (February 11) and International Women’s Day (March 8).

Stories from Women in STEM will showcase three female experts who will each tell a true, personal story about working as a woman in STEM. An informal networking session will follow the talks.
