Celebrating International Women’s Day 2021

On International Women’s Day, we celebrate and acknowledge the contributions and achievements of women around the world, and especially the amazing women at QIMR Berghofer, who are shaping a better future of health.

This year, we are sharing their stories of balancing career and motherhood and the importance of accelerating gender parity and forging positive change for women in all aspects of their lives at our International Women’s Day Forum.

QIMR Berghofer 2021 IWD Forum

Can women today really ‘have it all’? Is there a ‘right time’ to have children or to put your career first?

These are some of the questions we put to a panel of amazing women and mothers for our International Women’s Day Forum topic: ‘Motherhood and Career: Mission Possible’.

Professor Ranjeny Thomas, Professor Georgia Chenevix-Trench, Professor Rachel Neale, Associate Professor Vanessa Beesley and Ms Julia Little joined QIMR Berghofer Director and CEO Professor Fabienne Mackay, to share their words of wisdom.
