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.
