Today, we are not only celebrating another wonderful Chemistry woman, but also celebrating our latest starter. Welcome, @jamhead1017 !
Armed with a PhD in Genetics, Doctor Deborah joins Chemistry as our Interim Resource Manager, and is here to make sure that everyone's workload is manageable and efficient. Quite frankly, she's our hero!
In doing her PhD, Deborah's eyes were opened to gender discrimination in the workplace, and so made sure she did what she could to achieve equality for everyone. "Throughout my PhD I was made acutely aware of it [a time in your career where you felt being a woman has held you back], when I’d never considered it at all previously, having worked as a scientist. It was a shock, and one I never expected to face. I realised it wasn’t just me facing prejudice, so campaigned for equality, and was elected to the Union Council where I gave a voice to, not only women, but everyone."

Deborah, you rock!
