House of STEM is a network of LGBTQ+ people working in STEM in Ireland. Our aim is to give a stronger voice to LGBTQ+ scientists in Ireland, and to collaborate with international groups who are working to support our community.
What we do
As a small community-led initiative, we’re keeping it pretty simple.
- We co-organise the International Day of LGBTQ+ People in STEM.
- We organise local events for LGBTQ+ folks in STEM.
- We form a supportive professional and social network.
Why we do it
The LGBTQ+ community experience specific challenges in STEM. Our goal is to support each other, and other minoritised folks in STEM, in order to make it a more inclusive space.
