Women in Graphene Career Development Day

The "Women In Graphene" initiative within the Graphene Flagship has been set up to help support women and create a more gender diverse scientific community. It aims to connect women working in graphene through biannual meetings and peer to peer support.

Many industries are faced with problems when it comes to gender equality. For example, 99% of female chemists experience a lack of progression in their sector, according to evidence given by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC).

The Graphene Flagship, one of our Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships will host a two day program – the Women in Graphene Career Development Day – with seminars and workshops aiming to encourage diversity within this field’s community.

This will take place at the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester, UK between 11 and 12 February 2019 to coincide with the International Day of Women and Girls in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) with the objective of establishing a peer-to-peer support network and reoccurring bi-annual meetings.
