Inclusion and Diversity Forum 2021: Why belonging and inequalities in race and ethnicity matter

8 December 2021 14:00-17:00, United Kingdom


Introduction
The Royal Society of Chemistry Inclusion and Diversity Forum 2021 will take place virtually on 8 December, where we will be discussing inequalities in the chemical sciences with a focus on race and ethnicity.

Throughout this interactive event, we will present findings of our research into race and ethnicity inequalities in the chemical sciences. We will also discuss our recently launched report A sense of belonging in the chemical sciences

We will share some of our new initiatives to tackle inequalities in the chemical sciences and encourage participants to engage in the discussions and share your views.

The keynote speakers will be Professor Ann Morning discussing the importance of data collection and its challenges, and Professor Catherine Ngila discussing global connectivity.

During the Forum, a panel of experts from the global research ecosystem will discuss Influencing Change, the winners of the 2021 RSC Inclusion and Diversity Prize will receive their award, and a poster session will feature a number of community-driven projects supported by the RSC Inclusion and Diversity Fund.

If you have any accessibility requirements, please let us know through the registration form.
