This week marks the five year anniversary of the Women in Science Parkville Precinct initiative.
To mark the anniversary, Professor Julie Bernhardt, one of its co-founders, has been issued the Jacinda Ardern two-minute challenge — in which she outlines their achievement in just, two minutes.
The list is rather extensive…
For one, they’ve assembled a “powerhouse” team of 56 scientists and other volunteers to become change agents in their organisations.
They’ve started gender equity committees and gotten a thorough understanding of the barriers for women in the science at all levels.
They’ve formed cross institutional task forces
And they’ve connected 100 women from rural high schools with emerging leaders in science.
Watch the full video below.
In the style of @jacindaardern, watch @AVERTtrial list some of @WISparkville key achievements over the past 5 years in (just over) 2 minutes!! Full video @ https://t.co/hmrBsKJpT2 #WISPP5 pic.twitter.com/wWS78WmqWX
