Women’s Health Research Networking Event
The Sybil Centre, Women’s College, University of Sydney Camperdown campus
The Pregnant Pause
“You can have it all, just not all at the same time” – Betty Friedan
Building a successful career in health and medical research requires hard work, persistence, opportunity and a little luck. For women, the career path is further complicated by decisions about parenting, career gaps and when to take them.
The Pregnant Pause will be the subject of a networking evening hosted by Sydney Health Partners on behalf of the Women’s Health Research Translation Network of the Australian Health Research Alliance between 6:00-7:30pm, Wednesday 20th July 2022.
The focus of the evening will be on discussing and planning for career disruptions – something that commonly impacts women in the workforce including those in research. The evening will include three speakers, a panel discussion and informal networking over some light refreshments. There will be café-style roundtables, to help promote opportunities to network.
If you work to advance research and translation to deliver impact and better health for Australian women, join us at the Sybil Centre, The Women’s College, University of Sydney for an evening of canapes, career insights and a panel discussion.
Hear from accomplished researchers Professor Clara Chow, Professor Kirsten McCaffery and Dr Deb Randall about their careers - and the challenges and choices they’ve faced.
Listen to the panel discussion and have your say as we discuss the challenges of being a woman in health and medical research and ask, was Betty right?
