On Wednesday 9 March, the Department of Materials will host award-winning science journalist Angela Saini to celebrate Women at Imperial Week and International Women’s Day.

During the event, we will explore breaking gender and racial bias in STEM, reflecting on scientists’ historical role in establishing racist theories and discussing gender and racism in science today.

Please note Angela Saini will be attending the event virtually. 

The event will be chaired in person by our undergraduate students, Jaharana Siddika and Anjali Devadasan. 

For COVID reasons, the in-person event is limited to 70 people maximum. You will be sent an email with links to the online event, and to confirm if you have a place for the in-person event.

 There will be an in-person networking event held after the talk.
