Stories from LGBTQIA+ scientists and their unique journeys

Being a member of the Queer community can shape your path in any profession. Every person’s experience is uniquely based on the combination of their different backgrounds—race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status — and the sum of these identities present their own set of challenges and opportunities. Discover what you can do to make the sciences a more inclusive environment for everyone.

Come hear stories from LGBTQIA+ panelists and find inspiration in their unique journeys.
