This month Anna took part in the first ChemVoices webinar on ‘Resilience: a key in overcoming challenges‘. The ChemVoices series is organised by the International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN) the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).
The webinar, which took place on the 15th of September, was organised and hosted by the brilliant Torsten John and Lori Ferrins. Together with Dr. César A. Urbina-Blanco, a Postdoctoral Researcher at Ghent University, and Dr. Jesús Esteban Serrano, a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the University of Manchester, we discussed the ins and outs of resilience and what it means to early career researchers in Chemistry.
Make sure to check out the ChemVoices webpage for more information on this awesome initiative. Future webinars will focus on a range of different aspects and will highlight the voices of younger chemists worldwide.
Do also check out the Periodic Table of Younger Chemists, which was created as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of IUPAC and the International Year of the Periodic Table, and in which Anna was awarded the element Praseodymium.
