Millennium Fellowship Project
USYD Women Department is working on the 'Sanitary Item Project', 'Health Week Project', the 'Entrepreneur Project' and the ENID online publication. The aim is to empower women from a diverse range of backgrounds and disciplines through education.
The projected outcomes of our project by November of 2020 include to build a greater sense of community within the USYD cohort of women and to become an ecosystem of support because empowered women empower women.
The 'Sanitary Item Project' and 'Health Week' events provided intellectual education for women on Campus while provoking them to challenge norms and help break down the harmful taboos that surround menstrual health for women around them and for women globally. The 'Entrepreneur Project' and the ENID online publication empowered women from a diverse range of backgrounds and disciplines to learn from inspiring entrepreneurs and educators, meet like-minded people and challenge their thinking in a dynamic environment.
