Our Annual Symposium

Inclusion and Advancement of LGBTQ+ People in STEM Fields

Watch the highlights from our Inclusion and Advancement of LGBTQ+ People in STEM Fields symposium held on May 30 in Washington, DC.

This public symposium was the first to bring together federal funding agencies, the White House office that advises the President on science and technology, and the researchers shaping our understanding of how LGBTQ+ people navigate education and employment in STEM fields.

ISGMH, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the American Educational Research Association hosted the event.
