Speaker: Various speakers

Registration is now open for LGBT STEMinar 2018

We are excited to inform you that registration is now open for the 3rd LGBT STEMinar, which will be held in York on 12th January 2018. 

The LGBT STEMinar is a one-day research meeting designed for people who work or study in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and identify as LGBT+.

We aim to use the day to showcase work from diverse fields and to encourage collaborations between different departments, universities, companies and subjects. We also welcome those who may not identify as LGBT but wish to discover and support the work that LGBT+ people are doing. 

The event is free to register and attend due to the generous sponsorship of a number of organisations. The event will be hosted at the National STEM Learning Centre located on the West Campus.

The day will consist of a series of research talks, a poster session, workshops focusing on outreach and diversity issues, stalls for our sponsors and other networking opportunities. We have two fantastic key note speakers confirmed:

Dr. Beth Montague-Hellen (alumnus of York, Bioinformatics MSc 2004) - founder of the LGBT STEMinar and LGBT in STEM blog, who was recently nominated for a Gay Times Honour for Excellence in STEM.

Prof. Tom Welton FRSC - Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences at Imperial College London, Professor of sustainable chemistry and champion of inclusivity and diversity.
