Chemical Industry Awards Dinner June 2022 - Winners Announced


CIA Awards Dinner

Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds, 16th June

Our Events Director Hannah May enjoyed a fantastic evening at the CIA Awards Dinner in Leeds last week. Hannah was delighted to meet so many young chemists and felt truly invigorated and inspired by their enthusiasm for their work. She said that she wanted to give them all a prize!

The event is an inspiring celebration of the achievements of one of the UK’s most dynamic and significant business sectors

Each year an industry employee in the early stages of their career is crowned ‘Young Ambassador’. The Young Ambassador Award recognises an outstanding young individual, who is demonstrating communication skills and leadership associated with the chemical and pharmaceutical industry and contributing to its success.
