Diversity in Graphene


EU Funded

What is the Diversity in Graphene iniative?

Diversity opens the door to a broader range of talent, encouraging the sharing of new ideas and experiences, and providing insight into the needs and motivations of an increasingly multicultural world. For these reasons and more, the Graphene Flagship recognised the true value of diversity from the very beginning.

Our diversity-positive attitude is reflected by our Women in Graphene initiative – a series of events tailored to women scientists in the Graphene Flagship.Women in Graphene ran every year and sought to encourage women and girls to study and work in science.

But in 2020, we decided that our initiative had the potential to be even more inclusive. So we expanded and rebranded Women in Graphene to become Diversity in Graphene – a broader initiative to celebrate diversity, build a welcoming community and raise awareness for all underrepresented groups in all STEM fields, but in particular those in the graphene and layered materials community. The initiative officially kicked off during the Graphene For Research, Innovation, Collaboration online event in September 2020. Notably, Diversity in Graphene continues to support gender diversity and commemorates the many achievements of our women scientists.

Mentoring Programme
