ELEVATE - DEI Panel Plenary Speakers

The Applied Superconductivity Educational Foundation recognizes and is strongly committed to the significance and importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This year we have created an interactive DEI event featuring a panel of speakers to address the relevant topics brought forward from the superconducting community during our last event. These include: Unconscious bias; building awareness; achieving purposeful integration of this awareness into your professional practice; Communication and conflict management; engagement of members of your organization. We feel it is especially relevant to include in our discussion the influence of health, well-being and geo-political environment on diversity and inclusion. A pre-recorded talk will be released prior to the event to stimulate discussion and attendees will be given the opportunity to ask questions and interact directly with the in-person panel members.

Our Three Panelists are:

Dr. Tannaz Farrahi
Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Colorado, Boulder

ELEVATE - Early Career Plenary Speakers

In the frame of the ELEVATE Program, for the purpose of promoting professional & leadership development, the Early Career Plenaries event has been organized at the 2022 Applied Superconductivity Conference. This event follows the line traced by successful Young Scientist Plenary events at past Applied Superconductivity and Magnet Technology conferences, offering to early career scientists that are contributing significantly to developments in applied superconductivity, the prestigious opportunity to illustrate with short plenary talks their achievements or vision for future directions in our field. The early career scientists will be selected among recommendations made by the Program Committee, to have demonstrated outstanding, significant potential in the field of superconductivity and have gained the recognition and interest of other scientists in the community. The organizing committee believes that this addition to the plenary sessions gives the entire applied superconductivity community exposure to the novel thoughts, approaches and unexplored paths that these early career scientists can deliver.

The Early Career Plenary session is taking place on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, from 9:00 – 10:00 AM.
