International Women’s Day breakfast

UniSA staff and students were part of the largest event celebrating International Women’s Day in Australia, the Adelaide International Women’s Day Breakfast, in early March.

This year the breakfast was held as a virtual event on Friday 5 March but UniSA hosted a number of screenings to allow more staff and students to attend.

Senator Penny Wong hosted the virtual breakfast. Natasha Stott Despoja was the guest speaker. Stott Despoja was recently elected to the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women.

The event raised funds for UN Women Australia.

UniSA Chancellor Pauline Carr, Deputy Vice Chancellor: Research and Enterprise Professor Marnie Hughes-Warrington and Executive Director: People, Talent and Culture Jane Booth hosted an event (pictured) in Pridham Hall.

UniSA is a gold sponsor of Adelaide International Women's Day Breakfast. The sponsorship is one of a range of activities that occur in March as part of Gender Equity Month in support of the University’s commitment to gender equity and as part of its Bronze Athena Swan Action Plan.

UniSA welcomed many new students in February for orientation, both on campus and virtually. Students got the chance to meet their program coordinators, make new friends and explore campuses.

Here’s a few highlights from the week, including UniMentors – current students who provide ongoing support and a friendly face for new students.
