Council members honoured

Huge congratulations to two members of our Council, Professors Polly Arnold and Tom Welton, on being recognised in Her Majesty the Queen's Birthday Honours list for 2017.

Both receive well-deserved OBEs for their tireless work in promoting diversity in the chemical sciences.

Polly Arnold says of her honour: "To be honest, the first thing I did was check my privilege, and try to decide if I deserved recognition. 

"But of course I’m extremely flattered and hope it will make me work harder, and make me sound more persuasive. There are so many more things I want to do to help improve diversity in STEM."
