Who are your LGBTQ+ STEMM role models?

Can you name me one LGBTQ+ person in STEMM? How about another? I am sure that you are able to recognise the true importance of role models to inspire you to follow your career path. What if you didn't have a role model? Would you feel unwelcome in STEMM?

Celebrating Pride in the Norfolk STEMM Community is an exhibit to engage all audiences with the Norfolk LGBTQ+ community. Did you really think there is limited diversity in STEMM? 

On Friday 29 October, drop in to meet and chat to the scientists featured in the Celebrating LGBTQ+ Exhibition. Engage with our exhibition in real time by meeting the faces and stories behind the portraits. Find your next role model!

Cost: Free, drop-in
