More about the host: Josephine Hansom
Josephine became a steering committee member of MRS Pride last year and commented:
"We didn't get to march, parade or dance [last] year, but 2020 will be remembered by many as the year of the ally - such an amazing thing to happen during an extremely difficult year.
"Coming out isn't easy. As a MRSpride steering committee member I'm committed to being visible and to helping young researchers have the courage to have 'that' conversation with the new people they meet - to not fear the reaction of new colleagues, new employers, or new clients.
"Who you love shouldn't matter at work. Be kind and let others open-up."
