This webinar celebrates Black History Month, recognising and celebrating Black individuals and their contributions to chemistry. We also showcase the importance to continue building on these achievements while recognising that firm action is needed to eradicate the barriers of racism and discrimination in chemistry.
Our speakers Karen Salt (expert on governance, race, institutional transformation and justice), Robert Mokaya (Pro-Vice Chancellor for global engagement and chemistry professor at the University of Nottingham) and Lara Mosunmola Lalemi (chemistry PhD student at Bristol University and champion on decolonising science) discuss:
- Celebrating the Black chemistry community
- Actions needed from individuals, organisations and institutions to increase Black representation and break down barriers
- How ensuring a more inclusive community for Black chemists is better for all
BSL interpretation is provided by Rachael Dance, Cambridgeshire Deaf Association.
