International Women's Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. 

Each year the Queensland Brain Institute hosts an event to celebrate women in science, education and industry. Progress towards gender parity is slow and QBI and The University of Queensland are discussing issues surrounding inequality to bring awareness and change. 

The University of Queensland is excited to be a part of the national SAGE Pilot of the Athena SWAN program to address and improve gender equity in the science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) disciplines. Forty-five Australian organisations, including universities, medical research institutions and government research institutions, are involved in the SAGE Pilot of Athena SWAN.
