Celebrating Women in Academia

Celebrating Women in Academia

Griffith Institute for Educational Research in partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast is delighted to present a very special event:

'Celebrating Women in Academia'

The event is led by Professor Greer Johnson, Director of the Griffith Institute for Educational Research and Dr Ali Black, Senior Lecturer in the School of Education, University of the Sunshine Coast.

Ali is the co-editor of two recently published books, 'Lived Experiences: Women in Academia' and 'Women Activating Agency in Academia' which is the focus of this event.

The program features a panel of contributing authors from these books who will discuss key themes emerging from their chapters to liberate thinking around the "lived experiences" of women in academia.

This promises to be an informative and inspiring evening of personal accounts and open discussion which celebrates the work of female academics, values collaborative storytelling and showcases what matters to women in the academy.
