The LGBT STEMinar was held at the University of Sheffield on the 15th January.
“The conference is designed for people who work or study in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and identify as LGBT. We aim to use the day to show case work from diverse fields and to encourage collaborations between different departments, Universities, companies and subjects. We also welcome those who may not identify as LGBT but wish to discover and support the work that LGBT people are doing.”
The tweets from the day have been collected in a storify.
