Please join the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) and the SAGE Athena SWAN Committee to view a screening of The Leadership, a documentary about a voyage of 76 international scientists who set sail for Antarctica under the guidance of an Australian leadership coach. In this powerful film, these inspirational women reveal the systemic and personal challenges they face to maintain fulfilling careers in STEMM. 

At the conclusion of the film, a panel discussion with USQ leaders will be held live at the Toowoomba campus and livestreamed to the Springfield and Ipswich campuses. The panel will include USQ Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor Karen Nelson; USQ Executive Dean (Health, Engineering and Sciences), Professor Glen Coleman; and a to-be-announced external panel member.
