Webinar - International Day of Women & Girls in Science

Friday 11th February, 2022, 11am


Join AIFST for a virtual morning tea to mark this day.

The challenge will be to see how many food scientists we can get to a virtual morning tea.

Science and gender equality are both vital for the achievement of the internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Over the past decades, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging women and girls in science. Yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science.

In order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls, and further achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, the United Nations General Assembly declared 11 February as the International Day of Women and Girls in Science in 2015.

Our special guest will be Skye Blackburn talking about her science journey and her current project with AIFST to promote STEM and food science.

There is no charge to register for this event.
