    Australia: Taking the Freeze off Women in Leadership

    Australia: Taking the Freeze off Women in Leadership

    Across the world, the number of female leaders at the top of their industry, is dwarfed in comparison to male leaders. This trend is even more acute in the STEM arena – science, technology, engineering and mathematics. But how do you drive change? One innovative solution was to select a group of female future leaders working in science and send them off on a ship…to Antarctica.

    This leadership experiment was also filmed. All the fears, hopes and raw emotion of the participants and the organisers has been captured in the upcoming documentary called – The Leadership. One participant who took part in this life changing experience is population health and immunity researcher Dr Sarah Charnaud. Melbourne resident – and a former World Wide Wave panelist – Sarah is currently in Switzerland and joined us to share her experience.

    World: Covid-19 Impacts Multiplied for LQBTIQ Communities

    There is virtually no one in the whole world that the COVID-19 pandemic has not touched – 26 million infected, approaching 1 million deaths and the global economy thrown into disarray. But beyond the big numbers are real people trying to live through this invisible virus. And for already marginalised groups, such as LGBTIQ communities, the challenges faced are amplified.

    OutRight Action International is a global LGBTIQ advocacy organisation fighting for rights at the United Nations. Tonight, we speak with Amie Bishop – a Senior Research Advisor with OutRight Action International and author of a new report, Vulnerability Amplified: The Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on LGBTIQ People.

    Syria: They Treated Us In Monstrous Ways

    Syria: They Treated Us In Monstrous Ways

    The Syrian Arab Republic has long been a powder-keg of instability in the Middle East. The most recent conflict has overwhelmed the country since 2011.

    Under cover of conflict, perpetrators of sexual violence go unnoticed and unprosecuted. While women and girls are disproportionately targeted for sexual violence during conflicts, men and boys are hidden victims.

    One thing that is known is that, for their victims, there is no escape. With perpetrators from both the government and armed extremist groups like Isis, victims simply have nowhere to turn for help. Human Rights Watch is shining a light on these crimes in a report titled: “They Treated Us In Monstrous Ways” – Sexual Violence Against Men, Boys and Transgender Women in the Syrian Conflict. Researcher and report author Pinar Erdem from Human Rights Watch joined us to discuss the findings.
