SEPnet is proud to announce it is now a Bronze Sponsor of the 2nd annual UK-wide LGBT+ STEMinar.
The conference is for people who work or study in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and identify as LGBT+. The day will showcase work from diverse fields and encourage collaborations between different departments, Universities, companies and subjects. Those who may not identify as LGBT+ but wish to discover and support the work that LGBT+ people are doing are also very welcome.
Registration for the 2017 conference in Sheffield is open until Friday 16 December. https://lgbtstem.wordpress.com/lgbt-steminar-2017/
The IOP is also offering travel bursaries to their PhD / first year postdoc members who are registered to attend. E-mail LGBTphysastro@iop.org for more details.
This conference is a fantastic opportunity to meet other LGBT+ scientists and a get a wider perspective of STEM beyond your own research.
