This award was sponsored Queen's University Arts and Science and recognizes her equity, diversity, & inclusion efforts at Chemistry!  The Leaders Overcoming Gender Inequality in Chemistry (LOGIC) retreat will be hosted on May 23rd & 24th, 2020 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. This year the theme is “Beyond the Visible Spectrum”. The two-day program for the LOGIC Retreat will focus on productive discussions for working in the chemical sciences, including aspects of equity, diversity, and inclusion. There are currently five invited speakers, with Dr. Jess Wade (known for tackling gender bias on Wikipedia) as the keynote speaker. In addition, there will be two workshops that will focus on writing EDI statements for grant applications (hosted by Dr. Lisa Willis) and leading with inclusion (hosted by Catalyst). Attendees will have many networking opportunities with time to share their research and present their EDI initiatives. To conclude the event, a panel discussion will occur with representatives from various industries. Learn more about this fantastic retreat hosted by CWIC Network here:
