Can social media be a powerful tool for science communication and public engagement? Or is it still driven by goals like institutional visibility and top-down communication? What is it like to work behind the scenes of CERN Social Media? What is it like working in Switzerland, living in France and studying in Germany and being a woman of colour in STEM? Join in to find out as Chetna sheds light on these questions by sharing her journey from India to Europe.
