We had:

Fern Newcombe, Solicitor at Marrawah Law talking about Human Rights Month 2020. The Queensland Human Rights Commission run an annual campaign from 10 November – 10 December where they highlight the importance of protecting and promoting human rights. This year’s campaign is especially significant as 2020 is the first year that Queensland has had human rights protections written into law.


Associate Professor Lisa Whop, Senior Research Fellow at The Australian National University talking about how a new report released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) has revealed that just over half (52%) of eligible women (3.5 million) undertook Cervical Screening Tests in 2018 and 2019, driving Australia towards its goal of becoming the first country in the world to eliminate cancer.

Florence Drummond, Co-Founder and CEO of Indigenous Women in Mining and Resources Australia (IWIMRA) discussing how she has found global recognition listed in this year’s Women in Mining UK’s 100 Global Inspirational Women in Mining. The biennial publication is dedicated to highlighting the wealth of female talent in the mining industry and identifying role models for future generations.
