Come along to An Evening with 500 Queer Scientists to join vibrant conversations and hear stories from LGBTQIA+ scientists in Sydney who have successfully followed a career path in science while being out 'in the lab' and to their peers.
Over a glass of wine and nibbles, this Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras event will provoke positive debate and help promote science as an inclusive, forward-thinking, and viable career path for bright young queer minds!
The 500 Queer Scientists initiative launched in June 2018 and highlights the real need for increased visibility of LGBTQIA+ scientists. The issues are complex, but visibility and role models are part of the solution. Following the success of the last two years' sold-out events, we are proud to bring it to you again in 2021 with an entirely new panel of speakers!
Each ticket includes one drink on arrival and light refreshments after the panel discussion.
Here’s what attendees at last year’s event had to say:
- I loved the diversity of the speakers - in fields, backgrounds, age range, and interests. It was fantastic to hear from such a great intersection of the community!
- I liked the balance of the talks between their scientific research and about their personal journey.
- The location was fantastic. The setting was very relaxed but relevant.
- I cannot narrow it down to one thing, the whole evening was wonderful!
