Daphne Jackson Day 2020

03 November 2020 | Events events

Join us for the inaugural Daphne Jackson Day to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion in science and engineering research.

Join the Daphne Jackson Trust and the University of Surrey to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion in science and engineering research with the first Daphne Jackson Day, held virtually on Wednesday 18th November at 5.30-7pm.

Science and engineering are part of our everyday life, and Daphne Jackson Day celebrates equality, diversity and inclusion in science and engineering research, and aims to inspire everyone to find their passion for science, regardless of identity, background or circumstance. It is only due to greater diversity and inclusivity in research that we can face and solve some of the big problems of today and of the future, including the COVID-19 pandemic that we all are experiencing at this present time. With a packed and exciting agenda planned, attendees will hear from the Trust’s Chief Executive Dr Katie Perry, Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Dr Rebecca Richards-Kortum, Prof G Q Max Lu, Professor Margaret Rayman plus scientists & researchers from @UniOfSurrey involved in COVID-19 research and Daphne Jackson Fellows.

Please register your interest to attend and if you are one of the first 100 people to sign up, you’ll receive a special pack with family hands-on science outreach activities and nibbles!
