LGBT+ in Science

18th November 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

What’s it like to be out in science? Our stereotypes of scientists might not include queer people, but this is changing. You’ll find LGBT+ people at the lab bench, in the lecture theatre, the library and in the clinic. LGBT+ STEM Day is an international day that celebrates and showcases the lives and work of those scientists. It also serves to highlight inequalities that persist and opportunities to make science and workplaces more inclusive.

This LGBT+ STEM Day the School of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cambridge is hosting a virtual lunchtime seminar, in collaboration with the University’s LGBT+ Staff Network and lgbtQ+@Cam. Join us at midday on the 18th of November as we discuss experience of being of a marginalised gender or sexuality within science. This 60 minute seminar is for everyone, so even if this isn’t a topic you’ve previously considered, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about making STEM inclusive.

Our discussion will be facilitated by Duncan Astle (Chair, LGBT+ Staff Network) and Lucian Stephenson (LGBTQ+@cam Programme Co-ordinator).
