Matthew Flinders Anglican College on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland will host its third annual Inspiring Women in Science and Health (I-WiSH) conference for its Senior School students on Tuesday, 15 August.

Through the all-day I-WiSH conference, Flinders aims to address the under-representation of young women in the sciences and demystify and reveal the future pathways on offer. 

The 2023 conference brings together 48 girls in Year 10 at Flinders (change agents), 24 girls in Years 11 and 12 at Flinders (hosts & mentors), 8 leading women researchers (coaches) and 8 women doctoral students.

Flinders students will have the opportunity to learn about real-world research projects and to be mentored in how to devise and pitch a science-based initiative to a panel of judges.
