This event will address the topic of unseen social biases in the world of chemists and the wider community.

In a mixed format with interviews, and conversations with our audience, our panellists – junior and senior researchers in academia and industry – will talk about their experiences. By connecting those who are well established in their career and those who are at the beginning of this path, we aim to identify the challenges they face, and the biases they have to overcome, while acknowledging that biases are often internalised.

Approaching the matter from the standpoint of science ethics, gender equality and diversity, this event aims at levelling the playing field, and helping researchers to achieve their full potential.

This EuChemS Global Women’s Breakfast event is part of IUPAC’s Global Women’s Breakfast (#GWB2024) initiative.

The Global Women’s Breakfast event will be hosted by 2024 EuChemS President Angela Agostiano.
