“The low representation of women working with particle accelerators weakens the diversity and competitiveness in our field,” said Aliz Simon, Accelerator Specialist at the IAEA and one of the speakers at the event. “More outreach and additional efforts are needed to inspire young women to engage in nuclear physics and to support, inform and empower them throughout their careers.” The virtual webinar will take place at 11:00 CET on 24 February 2021 and will feature five renowned female accelerator experts: Aliz Simon, Accelerator Specialist at the IAEA Ceri Brenner, Leader of the Centre for Accelerator Science at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) Karen Cloete, Senior researcher at the UNESCO-UNISA Africa Chair in Nanosciences-Nanotechnology, School of Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Studies at the University of South Africa  Lyudmila Goncharova, Director of the Tandetron Accelerator Facility in Canada’s Western University Melanie Bailey, Reader in Forensic and Analytical Science at the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom Short bios of the speakers, the programme and registration details of the event are here . The low representation of women working with particle accelerators weakens the diversity and competitiveness in our field. Aliz Simon, Accelerator Specialist, IAEA Department of Nuclear Sciences and Applications IAEA and gender parity in nuclear sciences and applications The speakers will highlight their own career paths and what motivated them to start working and stay in this field. They will talk about the role of women in accelerator science and technology, what is needed to increase the representation of female experts in this field and why accelerators are a promising career for women. Attendees will be able to ask questions at the end of the webinar. The IAEA is working to reach gender parity in nuclear sciences and applications and has been supporting women for more than 60 years to excel in their careers by providing training and fellowship opportunities for women.

They use electromagnetic fields to propel charged subatomic particles, such as protons or electrons, to increase their energy and to travel in beams in a linear or a circular path at a very high speed, sometimes as fast as the speed of light. Accelerators have applications in fields as diverse as medicine, industry, cultural preservation and materials research. These machines can have various sizes and shapes depending on their application, but there are two basic types of accelerators: linear accelerators (LINACs) and circular accelerators. LINACs propel particles along a linear path. They are applied in medicine to treat various cancers, where accelerated, charged protons penetrate the patient’s body to target and kill tumor cells without extensively damaging surrounding healthy tissues, which is key in treating head and neck cancer. Circular accelerators propel particles around a circular path until they reach their optimum energy level. They are sometimes used in both colliding beam experiments, which means that the particles collide with each other to release high energy, or fixed-target experiments, which means that the beams of charged particles are directed to hit a specific target, such as in cyclotrons. A special type of circular accelerator is a synchrotron, which is fed (or ‘injected’) with electrons, that are already accelerated with a LINAC. The circular portion ramps up the electrons speed to a desired level and maintains this energy for prolonged periods. Synchrotrons are used not as particle sources, rather they are highly bright light sources for a plethora of research and development applications. Accelerators have numerous applications, for example: In cultural preservation, accelerators are used to preserve artefacts and help scientists find out what artifacts are made of and verify their authenticity without invasive techniques. In medicine, cyclotrons are used to produce radioisotopes for a type of medical drugs called radiopharmaceuticals, which diagnose and treat cancer.

It is part of the financial wellness gospel preached by insurance marketing agency Franklin Madison . Group Vice President of Carrier and Product Management Elizabeth Sheehan told PYMNTS that advanced technologies, in tandem with marketing services, can help financial institutions (FIs) guide their customers to the right insurance solutions at the right time and gain some financial education in the meantime. The conversation came against the backdrop where finance site GOBankingRates determined not long ago that only 3 percent of individuals queried passed a six-question quiz tied to financial literacy. And as PYMNTS has found, six in 10 individuals in the U.S. live paycheck to paycheck. Though there’s a lot of talk within financial services and other verticals about financial health, wellness and financial literacy , banks may need a bit of help in reaching their end customers and educating them on that journey. There may be cause to be a bit sanguine, as Sheehan noted. “One thing that we’ve learned a great deal about with respect to financial wellness and awareness is that, in times of uncertainty, people actually take the time to step back and take a look at what their financial needs are,” she said. The company offers banks and credit unions individualized direct marketing campaigns based on advanced technologies and data analytics to help craft digital and direct mail campaigns. The pandemic, perhaps not surprisingly, has spurred interest and purchasing of insurance products. “We are even seeing our pay through rates are significantly higher and our retention is significantly higher,” Sheehan said. Initially, as COVID-19 hit our shores, a significant number of people worried about whether their affairs were in order, she said. But as we’ve been battling the virus and the vaccines are being rolled out, it’s becoming ever more apparent that financial well-being is a personal state, she said, not necessarily described by objective measures. “Financial well-being is having financial security and freedom of choice both in the present and in the future,” she said. She noted that Franklin Madison had taken some inspiration from the CFPB and elements of its depiction of financial well-being — spanning the capacity to absorb financial shocks, control daily finances and maintain a path toward realizing financial goals. To help FIs reach out and educate their consumers, Franklin Madison uses analytics to match customers to products. The company, she said, maintains a database that includes decades of campaigns and their related data. “And then, on top of that, we use our proprietary marketing and response histories to predict who’s the most likely to respond,” she told PYMNTS. “That gets enhanced by our clients’ information that’s provided from our partners. We apply advanced analytical techniques to bring it all together and produce models.” The models, she explained, are customized for each client’s campaigns and produce a score that in turn is tied to a number of inputs from profitability, client goals and other metrics (including 1,500 customer attributes). This leads to targeted prospects who meet the goals that have been outlined at the start of the campaign. “Naturally, all of that falls within privacy laws by using unique numeric identifiers to make sure that we’re encrypting personal data and bringing it all together,” Sheehan said. “If it sounds quite complex — it is.” Speaking generally of Franklin Madison’s campaigns, she said, “A consumer needs to understand that they’re meeting a need and the product they’re purchasing will help them meet that need.
