Illustrating Women’s Career Pathway in Chemistry

“How many female chemists can you name?”
“If I tell you to name a few key people in Chemistry in our country or your state, what will be the percentage of women on that list?”
“How many Chemistry graduates actually stay in the field and contribute to society, whether it is in academia or the industrial sector?”

Last month, our team gave a talk in the webinar “Inclusion: A Cornerstone of Scientific Process” organized by the Association of Chemistry, St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai on April 4th, 2021 as part of their Chemistry Festival ‘AlChemia 2021’.

The webinar also featured two amazing and inspiring talks by Prof. Prajval Shastri (Indian Institute of Astrophysics) and Dr. Deepa Khushalani (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research).
