The Vision Science Academy expresses its appreciation to everyone who took part in our event for International Women’s Day 2023.

The event was a celebration of the accomplishments of women in Vision Sciences across the globe and recognised their valuable contributions to the profession.

Our distinguished speakers Dr. Najiya Sundus K. Meethal, Mrs. Celine Combrouze–Houzé, Ms. Junu Shrestha, Dr. Cathy Stern, Dr. Glenda Aleman–Moheeputh and Ms. Sucheta Mitra (Moderator) spoke passionately about gender equality and female empowerment, aligning with the theme of #EmbraceEquity for this year’s International Women’s Day.
