GC&E Friday Sessions
- May 21: Effective Science Communication Workshop | 11:00am-1:00pm ET
This workshop will focus on the importance of speaking for chemistry and will provide best practices and case studies of successful communication interactions. The workshop’s presenters will demonstrate the diverse reasons for communicating chemistry, and the possibilities and methods that exist to do so successfully.
- May 28: Careers in Green Chemistry & Engineering that Advance the Circular Economy | 12:00pm-1:30pm ET
Visualize your green chemistry/engineering career at this session organized by members of the Network of Early-Career Sustainable Scientists and Engineers (NESSE)! You will see how to leverage your green credentials in various career paths and hear how others have built a career under the umbrella of green chemistry and engineering.
- June 4: Toxicology for Chemists Workshop | 11:00am-2:00pm ET
Chemistry graduates need an understanding of molecular hazard in order to design more sustainable products. In this workshop, learn about Beyond Benign’s Toxicology for Chemists educational modules, hear from faculty who have piloted these materials, and brainstorm how to integrate these topics into your own courses.
- June 11: Influencing Green Chemistry in Pharma and Beyond | 10:00am-1:00pm ET
This technical session will highlight academic and industrial collaboration that enables better chemical selection and process design and advance the circular economy. Hear from members of the ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable and their academic research grantees.
