This year, the Nordic Network for Diversity in Physics is holding its annual meeting as a one-day online event on 29th January.

There are two exciting keynote speakers:

  • Ilona Riipinen is a professor at Stockholm University in the Department of Environmental Science. She works on the behaviour and motions of aerosol particles in the environment. Her talk, “What do we know about aerosols” looks set to be an interesting introduction to the latest research on this important, and complex topic.

  • Angela Saini is a British journalist whose highly-regarded books and broadcasts on important issues around representation and discrimination in science and society have received widespread praise. She will speak on “Racism in science and society”. This is a topic that Angela researched extensively for her book Superior: The Return of Race Science – which I strongly recommend reading if you get the chance. It is relevant to the Finnish experience as well, and indeed discusses the work researchers based here in Finland.

In addition there will be reports on harassment reporting practices and a round table discussion.

There’s still time to register! It promises to be a great event.
