Women in Chemistry 2019 – Conference and Careers Event

Women in Chemistry 2019 will bring together inspiring female leaders from varying research areas in both academia and industry, to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The conference will host a stimulating and innovative forum to highlight issues of equality and diversity in chemistry careers, and provide career advice to attendees of all genders. The day will consist of 6 talks from a diverse range of speakers: 3 from academia, 2 from industry and 1 working in science communication. The talks will be a combination of their scientific research, as well as the stories behind their personal career paths.

There will be a poster session during lunch, giving attendees the opportunity to showcase their own work, network with experts in their fields, and potentially win prizes. After the talks there will be a 30 minute panel session, for which attendees are invited to anonymously submit questions for the speakers throughout the day. The event will conclude with an informal networking reception.
