Chemistry World and the Inclusion and Diversity team at the Royal Society of Chemistry are proud to offer a monthly webinar series to support the chemical sciences community in response to and beyond the Covid-19 pandemic.
Throughout the Building a better chemistry culture series, we will illuminate the science behind the issues being experienced and provide support tailored to the needs of chemical scientists including sharing coping strategies and reducing stigma around mental health and wellbeing.
The fifth webinar in the Building a better chemistry culture series focuses on developing resilience to face change and uncertainty, which has been brought to the forefront for many in the chemical sciences as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Our speakers Boon Teo (early-career chemist, Varden Processing), Rehana Sidat (vice president of risk management, GSK) and Sam Thorogood (mindfulness expert, Tiny Pause) will discuss:
- Uncertainty regarding job security and career progression, including the impact of Covid-19
- Change management, particularly from a leadership perspective
- The psychology behind facing uncertainty and coping mechanisms to overcome it
BSL interpretation will be provided for the live webinar by Rachael Dance, Cambridgeshire Deaf Association.
