This event will showcase the outstanding research done by women across different fields of chemistry alongside discussions of their career journey and how to navigate career progression for chemistry and academia.  

This event is open to all.

The UNESCO International Day of Women and Girls in Science is celebrated annually on the 11th February and aims to promote women in science.  

“Tackling some of the greatest challenges of the Agenda for Sustainable Development - from improving health to combating climate change - will rely on harnessing all talent. That means getting more women working in these fields. Diversity in research
expands the pool of talented researchers, bringing in fresh perspectives, talent and creativity. This Day is a reminder that women and girls play a critical role in science and technology communities and that their participation should be strengthened.”
