February 27 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am


Tickets are now on sale for the 2024 GIWA Breakfast which is held in conjunction with the GRDC Grains Research Update, Perth and is proudly sponsored by the AEGIC.

In recognition and celebration of The United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science, GIWA and AEGIC are celebrating women in science and R&D in Australian agriculture and the grain industry at the event.

Guests will enjoy a video presentation from Jessica Wade, a physicist and Research Fellow at the Blackett Laboratory of Imperial College in London.

Following AEGIC’s Executive General Manager Courtney Draper will moderate a panel to discuss science in agriculture and the importance of fostering women’s leadership within the grains industry. The panel will also delve into ways we as an industry seek to broaden the diversity of voices contributing to our grains industry.
