International Conference on BioNano Innovation Brisbane, Australia September 2017
COACh Director Geri Richmond was invited to provide a workshop at the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology on “The Art of Effective Negotiation” to an engaging and fun group of postdocs and graduate students in connection with her participation at the 2017 International Conference on BioNano Innovation at the University of Queensland (UQ). In addition to the workshop, Richmond was part of an event to celebrate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, the first female Nobel Laureate from Australia and current director of the Salk Institute and gave a presentation on "The Importance of Inclusive Leadership in Science and Innovation". The University of Queensland is working very hard to level the playing field for women scientists here and with an impressive commitment.
HUGE thanks to Professor Debra Bernhardt and her colleagues including Professor Andrew Whittaker at the University of Queensland for organizing the workshop as part of the BioNano conference.
