On average the Neurological Foundation funds more female neuroscientists, researchers, professors and neurologists than male. On February 11 it’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science so were celebrating our female pride by hosting 4 panel discussions across New Zealand with a group of female neuroscientists we’ve funded. Join us for an all ages event and hear from a panel of female researchers at all different levels of their career discuss what they’re currently working on, why they’ve gone into neuroscience as a profession and their overall thoughts about how it is to be a female working in a science field.

If you think this event would be of interest to a young person we encourage you to bring them along to meet some of our amazing female role models.



Doors and registration will open at 6.00 pm and the event will start promptly at 6.30 pm. There will be a Q&A session after the panel discussion between all members of the panel. After the talk we invite you to stay and mingle for a little while with fellow science enthusiasts and the speakers, there will be nibbles and drinks served during this time.
