We are excited to host the esteemed Dr Megan Clark AC – Head of the newly formed Australian Space Agency.

Whether your interests are in the sciences, business, or a true Star Trekkie, Dr Clark’s broad background will deliver a stimulating and motivating discussion for those wanting to create greater balance in the workforce and hear about Australia’s innovation on the world stage in science, technology and innovation.
