Event description
The second year of the UK Regional oSTEM Conference STEM, LGBTQ & You! Hosted by the Birmingham oSTEM chapters.

About this Event

oSTEM is an international organisation for LGBTQ+ people working in, or interested in, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths).

Thanks to the generosity of alumni, through the Alumni Impact Fund, the Birmingham oSTEM chapters (oSTEM at University Birmingham, and oSTEM Birmingham Professionals and Postgraduates) are hosting the STEM, LGBTQ & You conference for its second year, and we are looking forward to making it an even bigger and better than in 2019!

STEM, LGBTQ & You is the UK regional oSTEM conference, and aims to bring LGBTQ+ STEM people together, as well as help educate our allies. The conference includes presentations from LGBTQ+ people studying and working in STEM about their research, their LGBTQ+ / STEM journeys, and the experiences they have had along the way. It also includes a panel discussion - "Educating as a STEM LGBTQ professional."

This is designed for everyone, regardless of if you have a STEM background or identify as LGBTQ. We welcome everyone who wants to learn more about a diverse range of subjects and/or how people who identify as LGBTQ experience the world of STEM.

This event is an amazing opportunity for LGBTQ+ STEM people to connect, but it is also an opportunity for our allies to get involved in the community and learn about our research as well as how to support us better.

The conference will be held in the Old Gym, University of Birmingham, Elms Road, Birmingham, B15 2TT on Wednesday the 26th February 2020 from 9:00 until 17:00
