Prominent women in STEMM panel
The 2019 Graeme Clark Oration Women in STEMM Lunch seeks to address this inaccurate portrayal of women by showcasing three outstanding Women in STEMM entrepreneurs. This event will serve to demonstrate and share the stories of women who have led companies in the biomedical and health space, and to help expand the breadth and depth of the network of women who are in STEMM entrepreneurship or who aspire to join this space.
Each woman will share her experience in stages of the start-up business journey, convene for a panel discussion and take audience questions.

This is just a quick note to say how much I appreciated both the stunning lecture as well as the wonderful dinner where we could also do great networking. The Graeme Clark Oration is a major contribution to scientific progress in Melbourne!
An event like this draws together politicians, scientists, the full gamut of some of the greatest minds and we sit around after an inspirational talk like tonight and talk about what we can do better.
Thank you for opening these
wonderful talks up to the general public. It is value for people to know the exciting things happening in science!
It is wonderful that as a student of health sciences I can hear such a world-class speaker in my hometown. And for free! Thank you, thank you for organising such an event!
Since the inaugural Oration was delivered by Professor Graeme Clark in 2008, the lecture has grown in stature and attracted outstanding orators, making it one of the most prestigious Orations within the Australian scientific lecture calendar.
