Science and Diversity Talk- Next Tuesday, London

Science and Diversity Talk- Next Tuesday, London

The inaugural meeting of the Litmus Club: Science and diversity- Join the WISE Committee at what looks like a fab discussion!

“Please join us for the inaugural meeting of the Litmus Club, where we’ll be discussing the long-standing but always interesting issue of science and diversity.

What barriers exist for people getting involved in science – to train as scientists, or discuss it as citizens – and what can science do to open itself up? How does science’s relative lack of diversity impact on its ability to research the world objectively, and apply its energies to a range of global challenges?

We’ll be joined by Polly Williams, who led Royal Society’s Picture of the Scientific Workforce and Michelle Brook, who has worked in science policy for several years and recently wrote a personal reflection on class in the academy which resonated with many around the world.

And Emily Dawson from KCL!

But most of all, we hope to be joined by you, because the Litmus Club is about discussions between people who come up, not the sparkly speakers we can bring along.

April 15th, basement of Fairly Square, start 7pm sharp.”
