Who We Are
Pride in STEM is a charity run by an independent group of LGBTQIA+ scientists & engineers from around the world. Proud of who we are and what we do.
By showing that not everyone working in STEM fits the same
As such, we’re here to share our voice as LGBTQIA+ individuals in STEM who want to show that science is for everyone.
Variation for every scientific nation!
Pride in STEM works to highlight issues as well as strategies to bring those changes forward. Pride in STEM is there to give a platform and support for LGBTQIA+ people in STEM so they can be visible, as well as to provide a voice for those members of our community who cannot safely be publicly out.
Pride in STEM is committed to support and deliver intersectional changes to STEM disciplines. Underrepresented groups might belong to different gender identities, have different gender expression, sexual orientations, ethnicities. They might have disabilities. They might belong to different socio-economic backgrounds. STEM needs to be accessible to all and all should feel that they belong in STEM.
