Members of the HRM Collective at the HRM Launch event in 2019.

Her Research Matters (HRM) was launched in October 2019 with the mission to promote, sponsor and foster the talents and research of women research leaders in Monash Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS).

HRM is a grass-roots initiative driven to challenge and change the status quo with respect to women research leaders in the biomedical sciences.

We are unique in that we are outcome-focused, seeking to leverage collective networks, skills and voices to raise the international profile of leading women in our faculty and celebrate their successes.

HRM has actively engaged the next generation of scientists, coordinated promotion review for MIPS researchers to address gender inequity at senior levels, and worked together with PharmAlliance to effect change at a global level.

We support and promote diversity and inclusion at Monash to ensure we are valuing different minds to solve complex problems.
