The theme of International Women’s Day this year is Cracking the Code: Innovation for Gender Equal Future. In a special session held at #AGS23, two prominent female leaders - Marina Go MAICD who is a director at Adore Beauty, Transurban, EnergyAustralia and the AICD and scientific futurist Dr Catherine Ball GAICD discussed pressing issues facing women in the workforce and across the world.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is a United Nations observed day held on 8 March every year.
“In order to crack the code to gender equality, we need to leverage inclusive technologies, embrace disruptive innovation and ensure access to education - to combat generational and systemic gender-based discrimination, embedded in our cultural bias for generations,” the innovation theme urged this year.
Marina Go who is a director at Adore Beauty, Transurban, EnergyAustralia and the AICD and scientific futurist Dr Catherine Ball, an adviser to the Schmidt Ocean Institute and an Associate Professor at the Australian National University, discussed innovation and the rewards it can bring not only for women who work in the STEM field (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) but also in everyday life.
