International women’s day

I was reminded that International Women’s Day is Tuesday March 8th and this year’s theme is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow“. What a great theme. It made me think about my own role as a female scientist and the types of events I like to host and participate in that hopefully address gender bias but also more broadly contribute to improving the environment around us. Late last year I was honored to receive Tasmanian Young Tall Poppy of the Year award (learn more about the Tall Poppy campaign and the 2021 Young Tall Poppy award winners here https://aips.net.au/tall-poppy-campaign/young-tall-poppy-of-the-year-01/). I made the video below as part of the campaign and thought it was a nice way to talk about how I contribute to a sustainable tomorrow.
