At the Women in the Chemical Enterprise Breakfast  during the ACS National Meeting in Philadelphia, Hannah Murnen, the VP of Business Development at Compact Membrane Systems, discussed diversity in the workplace with “It’s about all the people”: What are the problems, why is diversity important, why do we care and what can we do to address the problem? Hannah presented data about the issue, reasons for encouraging a diverse workforce, limitations in achieving diversity, and ways to counter bias. Organized by WCC, the Fall 2016 breakfast was held with support of BASF.
