Tom is a scientist and leader with a long history of championing diversity in academia and awarded an OBE for his services to diversity in education in 2017. As the Head of Chemistry, the department was awarded and renewed an Athena SWAN gold award (this was the first gold award for Imperial and, at the time only the 4th in the country). In this event Tom will discuss diversity and inclusivity in academia and the work done at Imperial, drawing on many examples from his personal experience with Athena SWAN.
The audience will be actively involved in the discussion, and encouraged to bring their own experiences and ideas and steer the conversation into the areas that are most important to them.
