ASC Diversity in Science and Engineering Event


ASC will modify the Diversity and Inclusion Event information once a virtual conference platform is selected.


The Applied Superconductivity Conference has made a commitment to the significance and importance of Diversity and Inclusion. This year our event will invite a panel of speakers and conference participants to address the relevant topics which were collected at our last event. These include: Unconscious bias: building awareness; achieving purposeful integration of this awareness into your professional practice; Communication and conflict management; how to engage others in your organization.

Let’s gather and address underlying issues that may be limiting technical growth and affecting recruitment, mentorship, career transitions and other aspects that are deleterious to our focused scientific field.

Organizers include Dr. Cathy Foley, CSIRO; Dr. Kathleen Amm, Brookhaven National Laboratory and Dr. Sasha Ishmael, Lupine Materials and Technology.

Panelists include Dr. Cathy Foley, Science Director and Deputy Director Manufacturing, CISRO, Australia and Kathleen Amm, Division Head and Senior Scientist, Superconducting Magnet, The Superconducting Magnet Division, Brookhaven National Labs.
