Her Research Matters


Only 17% of senior scientists within Australian universities are women.

Her Research Matters (HRM) is a grass-roots driven, outcome focused collective that promotes, sponsors and fosters an inclusive and equitable leadership environment to enable all women in academia to reach their full potential.


For us, success is:

  • Creating a strong and supportive network for HRM Collective members
  • Celebrating the achievements of HRM Collective members
  • Increasing awareness of current barriers to career progression faced by HRM Collective members, advocating for required changes as well as working as a collective to mitigate the  impact of these barriers
  • Showcasing the research led by HRM Collective members to a wide audience
  • Creating new funding and career advancement opportunities for HRM Collective members
  • Establishing the HRM Collective as a valuable and permanent part of the Monash Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
