Diversity in Graphene Launch in 2020


Diversity in Graphene expands upon the remit of Women in Graphene to strive for the inclusion of all minority and marginalised groups.

Keynote speakers

Anne Goldberg


After a career in the chemical industry, Anne Goldberg remains active on promoting science and technology among young people, especially girls. Expert in materials science, nanotechnology and innovation, she is also a member of the Graphene Flagship’s Strategic Advisory Council. In this talk, she will frame and question the mainstream discourse on diversity and inclusion, and elaborate some food for thoughts on future challenges in the scientific world.

Cinzia Casiraghi


This talk presents the focus issue "Women's Perspectives in Materials Science: 2D Materials,” published in JPhys. Materials (IoP). This initiative aims to highlight the work of a selection of female researchers at different stages of their independent careers, to recognize their excellent science, and to provide a multitude of female role models, who bring a positive change to the “leaking pipeline” phenomenon.
