About This Event

Professor Franca Ronchese is Programme Leader at the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research in Wellington, NZ, and Research Professor at Victoria University of Wellington. In this candid presentation, Prof Ronchese will discuss her career to date and how she has managed caring responsibilities alongside her work, which has taken her from her home country of Italy to the USA, Switzerland and now New Zealand.

Prof Ronchese will be joined by a panel of women and men from across the Alfred Research Alliance who will share their own experiences of balancing work and family, and provide practical advice on how they make it work.
