Empowering Diversity in Science

Angewandte Chemie and Chemistry Europe will host the virtual symposium "Empowering Diversity in Science: Gender in Academia and Publishing" as a part of the IUPAC Global Women's Breakfast initiative.

The speakers will offer their perspectives on the connection between publishing / public recognition and their effect on diversity in academic science with a focus on gender.

The event will be moderated by Sandra González Gallardo (Chemistry Europe) and Lisa Pecher (Angewandte Chemie) and will close with a lively discussion with the presenters.
