Inclusion and Diversity Forum 2022

6 December 2022 10:00-17:00, London, United Kingdom

The Royal Society of Chemistry Inclusion and Diversity Forum 2022 will take place in person on 6 December at the Royal Society of Chemistry in Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.

Through talks and interactive discussions with our invited speakers, we will continue to advance progress on inclusion and diversity in the chemical sciences – together. 

There will be a plenary discussion with Dr Karen Salt (UKRI) and Professor Iyiola Solanke (University of Oxford) celebrating the joy of inclusion and diversity. We will also hear from plenary speaker Professor Sara Rankin (Imperial College London) on her advocacy work in neurodiversity. Dr Zoë Ayres (Figura Analytics) and Dr Marc Reid, (University of Strathclyde) chemical scientists and recent book authors, will discuss their motivations behind their books on mental health and the imposter phenomenon.

We will hear from participants of our new programmes addressing racial and ethnic inequalities (Destination STEMM – Chemical Sciences and Broadening Horizons in the Chemical Sciences), and highlight our recent work in improving the inclusion of disabled chemists. 

The winners of the RSC 2022 Inclusion & Diversity Prize will be formally presented with their medal, and we will hear about community-driven projects financially supported through the RSC Inclusion & Diversity Fund.

The Forum is our annual opportunity to make and enable progress on inclusion and diversity in the chemical sciences by bringing together stakeholders, topic experts and members of the chemical sciences community.

Your voice can make a difference. We encourage attendees to participate in the discussions and to share their views, helping us to advance inclusion and diversity as a community.
