Join us for a captivating conversation between two superwomen of science communication as we celebrate the finale of this year’s Unsung Heroes of Science competition.

Angela Saini is an award-winning science journalist and broadcaster. Her influential books on scientific sexism and race science have been celebrated by critics and readers alike, winning prizes and nominations in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Professor Alison Woollard is a biochemist and Public Engagement Champion at the University of Oxford who researches biological mechanisms relating to ageing and development. She presented the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in 2013 with a three-part series on the remarkable transformation of single cells into complex organisms.

In this conversation, Alison and Angela will share their passion for inclusivity in science, exploring Angela’s research into the past, present and future of discrimination and inequity in science.

Alison will then go on to announce the winners of the 2021 Unsung Heroes of Science video competition, which challenges 16-18s to make a two-minute video about a scientist who they think deserves more recognition.
