It’s been a while since we last posted, but we’ve been working hard on new initiatives to support LGBTQ+ scientists, and we will send you more updates on those soon.

In the meantime, we’re excited to tell you that House of STEM has once again teamed up with some amazing groups to organise the second International Day of LGBT+ People in STEM, this Friday 5th July.

There are lots of ways you can get involved…
