Launching the Strathclyde LGBT+ Staff and PhD Student Network
In alignment with the University of Strathclyde's commitment to EDI, the STEM Equals team is working with the Equality and Diversity team to facilitate the creation of an LGBT+ staff and PhD student network.
We believe the network provides an opportunity to build a more diverse and inclusive academic community and enhance support for and visibility of a marginalised and underrepresented community at Strathclyde.
The STEM Equals team have met with members of the leadership committees of the LGBT+ staff and PhD student networks at other universities in the UK and discussed the support mechanisms provided to them by their institutions.
Join STEM Equals on 18th November at 3pm (UK time) for a free, virtual event to celebrate LGBT STEM Day with a focus on the contributions LGBT+ researchers in STEM are making to address climate change. Register online: LGBT STEM Day: Celebrating LGBT+ researchers fighting climate change
On 21st October, STEM Equals were pleased to host, along with CILIA-LGBTQI+, the event LGBT+ in HE: Building networks, making change where we discussed how to create more inclusive research/working communities for LGBT+ people in higher education. Videos available soon!
