Women’s leadership in science and industry: 125 years on from the suffragists

Universal suffrage is a human rights issue, but WINNING the right to vote was a movement that required vision and gutsy leadership. This year is the 125th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in New Zealand. At this year’s Dodd-Walls Symposium (www.doddwalls.ac.nz) at Auckland on Tuesday, June 26th, an open-to-the public (6:00-7:30 PM) presentation and discussion will be held on the theme of Women’s leadership in science and industry: 125 years on from the suffragists. The Dodd-Walls Centre hereby extends an invitation to all to join this celebration and forward-looking discussion.

Three extraordinary leaders will give their personal perspectives on the theme as women with exemplary leadership records, vision, and drive: Professor Margaret Brimble (University of Auckland and first NZ woman to be elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of London), Dr Frédérique Vanholsbeeck (University of Auckland, Senior Researcher of the Dodd-Walls Centre and NZ Food Safety Science & Research Centre), and Ms Charlotte Walshe (CEO of Jade Software and a Board member of NZTE).

Date: Tuesday, 26 June 2018, 6:00 to 7:30 PM
