Dr. Valeria Rodionova entered the shortlist for the Materials Today Agents of Change Awards 2019. Each year the Materials Today Agents of Change awards recognise initiatives that are taking practical steps to encourage a more inclusive materials science research community. The focus of the 2019 awards is initiatives and programmes that focus on driving gender equality within the materials science research community.

On a webpage of Agents of Change 2019 shortlist are written:

“Dr. Valeria Rodionova launch of a series of colloquia addressing specific challenges that women face in undertaking research in materials science. They would be held in schools and universities across the Kaliningrad region of Russia.”

“The laboratory members promote gender equality and provide different activities directed to solving the problem of women representation in science. This year the laboratory won the prize of the best poster presentation at the Inspiring Women in Science event held at The International Conference on Fine Particle Magnetism -2019 (Gijón, Spain)[read more here].

The aim of the proposed initiative is to encourage young girls (pupils or students) to choose doing research and take jobs in materials science and, more generally, in STEM(Science, Techology,Engeneering and Mathematics).”
