Event Description

The U.S. National Committee for the International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry (USNC/IUPAC) and Beyond Benign are delighted to invite you to join us in the spirit of connection, gender equity, and sustainability for the IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast (#GWB2024) held in conjunction with the U.N. Day of Women and Girls in Science. This virtual event hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will include overviews of the USNC/IUPAC and Beyond Benign followed by a moderated Q&A with a panel of women in the green and sustainable chemistry space. The panel will discuss their efforts for, experiences in, and insights for catalyzing this growing movement. Panelists will also discuss the new potential for community development and connection toward achieving a sustainable future. Registration for this event is free and we encourage the community to submit questions for the Q&A (link). If you would like to host your own GWB event either as a standalone activity or as a local discussion in conjunction with our panel, you can find more information at the IUPAC/GWB website (
