Speaker Profiles:

Introducing our first panelist, Dr Roisin Boadle - Teach For Australia Alumni

Roisin Boadle participated in the Teach For Australia Leadership Development Program in 2016/17 at Namadgi School in South Canberra, where she now continues to teach across the STEM subjects. Prior to the program, Roisin was heavily involved in the academic world of Physics research, studying her Bachelors, Masters and PhD in quick succession.

Her journey towards Teach For Australia’s program was grounded in two areas. Firstly, in her enjoyment of working with others to inspire a passion for Science, both in high schools and as a lab demonstrator during her PhD at The Australian National University. Secondly, in her understanding that her educational experience has been a privilege, yet access to education for all students should be a right.

Introducing our second panelist, Dr Joyce Wu - Crawford School of Public Policy

Joyce is a Research Fellow at Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University. This is a joint position with the Land and Water Division of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), to integrate gender into the going work of Sustainable Development Investment Portfolio (SDIP) in water management in South Asia. SDIP is funded by the Australian Government, and is currently in the second phase of implementation.

Joyce’s research interests include gender and development, gender and natural resources management, integrated water resources management and gender, violence against women, male behavioural change, gender and participatory development. She has research experience in South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific. Prior to academic life, Joyce worked in the international development sector, with organisations including UN Women and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Office for Women. Her book, Involving Men in Ending Violence against Women Development, Gender and VAW in Times of Conflict, is based on her PhD research.

Introducting our third panelist, Dr Krisztian Baranyai - Office of the Chief Scientist

Dr Krisztian Baranyai is the head of education at the Office of the Chief Scientist, providing strategic advice to government on STEM education and the workforce. Krisztian holds a BSc and MSc from Monash University and PhD in chemistry from the ANU. Krisztian is currently involved with a number of projects regarding school-based STEM education, including the STEM Partnerships Forum, which will explore ways for industry partnerships to help equip teachers, career advisers and parents to advise students about emerging career opportunities and the specific skills and knowledge required.

Introducing our fourth panelist, Madison Hartill-Law - Science Communication Entrepreneur

Madison Hartill-Law has a passion for helping scientists share their stories. After completing a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) at the University of Sydney, Madi went on to complete a Masters of Science Communication (Outreach) at ANU. She now uses these science communication skills in a multitude of roles including, communication officer for a local start up Health Horizon, founder of a science shirt business Shirty Science, program manager for STEM Sells an after school program for girls and co-organiser of monthly meet up SCI ART CBR.

Further speakers will be announced in the coming days. Register through Eventbrite now to secure your free ticket!
