In Australia, 48.2 per cent of people were born overseas or have parents from overseas... so how can we celebrate these diverse experiences of culture? 

Hear from Sarah Malik, Walkley-award-winning Australian investigative journalist, author, and television presenter, as she unpacks this + more at UTS’s 2023 International Women’s Day celebrations. 

The event will also feature a panel discussion facilitated by Verity Firth, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Social Justice and Inclusion), UTS. The panellists will share their own personal stories and experiences of navigating the world through the lens of gender, culture, race – and how to step into your power.
