More than 120 Queensland international student leaders from different leadership backgrounds brought multicultural diversity to the forum. Student leaders carrying different titles at institutional levels all over Queensland added value to the insightful discussions at the forum.

Travels with wild chemicals – Distinguished visitor lecture by Prof. Mary Garson

QUT was honoured to host RACI Margaret Sheil Medallist Professor Mary Garson for a Distinguished Guest lecture titled “In search of a professional career: Travels with Wild chemicals”.

The RACI Margaret Sheil Medal was established in 2017 honouring the trail-blazing contributions of Professor Margaret Sheil AO, Australia’s first female chemistry professor, and the current Vice Chancellor of QUT. The spirit of this award is to recognise and honour female leaders in a chemistry-related field who have championed workplace equitability for women in STEM and/or outstanding mentorship for juniors.

I had the privilege of being able to attend this lecture and hear about Prof Mary Garson’s life and career journey, and her exciting discoveries and work in marine science.

As a young female chemist just finishing her Bachelor’s, listening to Prof Garson’s career journey was inspiring and exhilarating. Her tales of what led to the career she has today, seemingly poor decisions that lead to stellar scientific collaborations and contributions and a global network of friends and colleagues inspired me to continue in my field and to see the silver lining in everything.

She also divulged the secret to getting a species named after you as she has a flatworm species named in her honour, and the importance of bravery and resilience to achieve success.

She ended her lecture with a great piece of advice: write 250-300 words every day and you will thank yourself. 

I intend to follow her advise and remember her words to keep me inspired and galvanised to follow my dreams.
