Let's Reconnect with special guest A/Prof Caroline Ford

After a long and trying year, we are excited to come together to say goodbye to 2021 and reconnect the FW community over good food and drinks – and, of course, a wonderful speaker!

We will be joined by A/Prof Caroline Ford – head of the Gynaecological Cancer Research Group at UNSW, founder of the STEMMinist Book Club, philanthropic partner of fashion label Camilla and Marc, and Superstar of STEM! Caroline will share her career journey with us, including the twists and turns that have seen her on stage at Australian Fashion Week one month then juggling work and home-schooling the next, how she has sought out-of-the-box funding for her research career, and built her own profile as a thought leader on women’s health and gender equity.

In a special shake-up of our usual ‘In Conversation’ style, Caroline will be interviewed by Prof Deborah Marsh, a collaborator, mentor and friend – the perfect person to bring us Caroline’s story.

There will be plenty of time to ask Caroline questions and to mingle with women working in diverse roles across the health and medical research sector. We are so looking forward to reconnecting with you all and bringing in the new year with a dose of inspiration!
