The 2017 International Women’s Day theme is Be Bold for Change. This special Kirby Institute seminar celebrates the successes of women in research. Our outstanding panel of speakers will share bold new approaches and concepts for change from the perspective of politics and policy, academia, community and early career researchers and students.

The short talks will focus on how past barriers have been overcome and paved the way for the future, and what barriers remain to be boldly challenged.
