NHLI Athena Lecture

9th January 2019

How can we celebrate and support diversity in STEM – a younger perspective’.

 Introduced by Professor Sara Rankin, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at the NHLI, this year’s lecture broke from tradition by offering a younger perspective on the representation and advancement of women in science. The three guest speakers had been recognised for their commitment to campaigning for diversity in STEM. They each give a 10-15 minute talk followed by a 15 minute Q&A panel facilitated by Dr Mike Cox, a postdoctoral research associate (PDRA) at NHLI and member of the NHLI Athena Self-Assessment Team.

Inspiring and thought-provoking talks from Dr Jess Wade, Dr Faith Uwadiae and Siena Castellon covered many vital themes promoting gender and race equality as well as advocating Neurodiversity.
