Event Description

QueersInScience proudly invites you to the LGBT STEMM Day Symposium, the first Australian symposium for LGBTQIA+ researchers and their allies working in STEMM.

This symposium will showcase and celebrate the outstanding achievements of internationally recognised Australian LGBTQIA+ researchers, provide role models for emerging professionals in STEMM, and promote awareness and understanding of the issues faced by LGBTQIA+ people in this sector and ways to solve them. Find out more at http://www.symposium.queersinscience.org.au/

You will hear inspiring research talks from leading LGBTQIA+ STEMM researchers including Dr Penny Whetton (climatologist), Dr Tana Tan (engineer), Dr Jaclyn Pearson (Microbiologist), A/Professor Penelope Bryant (paediatric infectious disease physician), Professor David Balding (Statistical Geneticist) and many more.

This will be followed by a panel discussion with leading researchers Professor Julie Owen (Deputy Vice Chancellor Research), Dr Toby Merson (Neuroscientist) and others discussing their lived experience of being a LGBTQIA+ identified individual in the Australian STEMM fields.
