Professor Polly Arnold is the Crum Brown Chair of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh.

In 2012 the School of Chemistry received the Athena SWAN Gold Award in recognition of its significant and sustained progression in promoting diversity and gender equality.

As winner of the 2012 Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Prize, Polly was responsible for ‘A Chemical Imbalance’, a short book and documentary film, which together celebrate female scientists and look at why women are still so under-represented in STEMM .

It aims to highlight some of the persistent challenges still faced by women, and hopes to contribute to the wider debate about how we can progress towards equality.

In this Athena SWAN Network event, Polly will share her experiences of Athena SWAN and gender equality initiatives.

A light lunch will be provided.
