CSIRO partners with Women in Technology to talk future tech

April 5th, 2024

AEHRC women wowed event attendees with their work and offered valuable advice as panellists.

CSIRO partnered with Women in Technology to share some of CSIRO’s groundbreaking work and discuss the future of technology.

CSIRO’s Claire Mason, Maryam Yazdani and Loretta Clancy discussed artificial intelligence (AI) in the workforce, CSIRO-developed technology that aims to increase the efficiency of biosecurity inspection, and novel systems to capture data in field trials.

The AEHRC’s own Janet Fox and Dana Bradford joined Wilma James and Michelle Colgrave to discuss their unique career journeys.

The panellists talked about their personal experiences, discussing the role that luck and seizing opportunities played in their success. They also set the record straight on some mentorship myths. The group then explored the translation of research into practical outcomes, something that all four women share a passion for. Finally, the women reflected on how CSIRO supports people to grow and thrive.

Conversations were lively – attendees stuck around to chat until 8.30 pm!

Nine CSIRO women, including two from the AEHRC, attended a recent event by the Women in Technology organisation.
