Wellington Launch Photos 2024

On the 26th of March Chiasma Wellington hosted our first event for 2024: Launch! What an amazing night, we’re still buzzing from the incredible energy and enthusiasm from those who joined us at the Memorial Theatre at Victoria University of Wellington.

From inspiring panel discussions to valuable connections, it was an unforgettable night as we explored this year’s theme ‘Bridging the Gap’; how can effective communication strategies unite science and society, promoting understanding and collaboration? There’s nothing quite like passionately discussing topics and sharing career aspirations alongside decadent platters and desserts!

An enormous thank you to our speakers; Dr. Gill Jolly who brought a wealth of knowledge to the panel on connecting science with policy and fostering collaboration across sectors, Dr. Sarah Jane O’Connor who provided us with valuable insight on the importance of bridging the gap between scientists and the public, and Dr. John Kerr who shed light on the intersection of science, media and public perception of the science industry. Special thanks to our MC Dr. Maddie White who kept the energy high and conversations flowing throughout the night!
