LGBT in STEM Thursday 8th February 2018

A stimulating event on "LGBT experiences in STEM" took place on Thursday 8th February. A discussion on the experiences of LGBT people in STEM careers and their journey through education, the evening included two speakers from the Trinity faculty: Dr.Vladimir Dotsenko,(Assistant Professor, School of Mathematics) and Dr.Frederick Sheedy (Ussher Assistant Professor, School of Biochemistry and Immunology), in addition to speakers from HubSpot and IBM.

The panel gave insight to their contrasting career experiences as LGBT individuals in STEM fields, taking further questions from the audience on the developing, and often challenging, area of representation in the scientific disciplines.

Many thanks to Paul Shanahan, Faculty Convenor (EMS) TCD Students' Union for organising.
