As a response to a report on the Diversity landscape of the chemical sciences that was published earlier this year, RSC recognizes the need for initiatives aimed at actively overcoming barriers, to aid the retention of women in academia and encourage their progression to leadership positions.
This collection aims to contribute towards this goal by showcasing high-quality work by female scientists, both to celebrate their own achievements in the field and to act as an inspiration for early career researchers within the community.
The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) was founded in 1841 and is the UK’s largest professional body for chemical scientists with 54,000 members and an international publishing and knowledge business.
