IUPAP has recognised a particular need to foster the participation of women in physics. The IUPAP Conferences series on Women in Physics, organised by IUPAP Working Group 5, has a history not only of success and growth but also of making a difference in the physics community. The conference will be held in July 2021 virtually organised in partnership with the Australian Institute of Physics (AIP) and all Australian Physics Departments, Australian Research Council Centres of Excellences, Australia's Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO), Defence Science and Technology Group (DST), Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), National Measurement Institure (NMI), the Australian Academy of Science and Academy of Technology and Engineering. Many of these organisations have been awarded or are working towards being awarded Bronze SAGE awards for their commitment to promoting diversity. They all look forward to being fully involved in the conference. Australia has a long track record in the area of gender equality in science. The conference is unusual in that it relies on Country Teams of limited size, selected through Physical Societies in each country. It is important that developing countries and island states are given a major voice in this way.

This conference also plans to assist in the development of deeper research collaborations by setting up links between relevant researchers visiting from overseas and based in Australia. The aim is to create an enduring legacy of new science that will result from this initiative.

This conference is currently sponsored by all Physics Departments in Australia, Physics-based government organisations and Australia Research Council centres of excellence related to physical sciences. We are also seeking support from some relevant industry partners.
