Vic Branch – We all count: Strengthening stats and maths through diversity

  • 10 Dec 2019
  • 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM (AEDT)
  • Old Geology Lecture Theatre 1, University of Melbourne, Parkville

Initiatives to increase the diversity of the statistics and mathematics workforce are flourishing around Australia and around the world: but what impact do these initiatives have? In this event, we will talk to some of the women leading initiatives to increase the representation of women in stats and maths. Join us for an evening of discussion around why diversity is important, what some of the barriers to women’s equal participation in STEM fields are, what is being done to break these barriers down, and what you can do.

A panel discussion will follow a series of short talks:

After the event we will be going to the Prince Alfred Rooftop and Bar for dinner and to continue the conversation. Everyone is welcome to join, however food and drinks will be at your own expense. Current SSA members will receive a free refreshment!
