LGBTQ+ Panel November 18, 2021 at 12pm- 2pm EDT
All of our Panelists and Moderators are paid at this event.
In January 2021 at the Mindful Conservation Conference there was a successful seminar on “creating a safe space for LGBTQ scientists”. One of the conclusions was a need for more informative talks and discussions about creating safe spaces for our LGBTQ+ community. To continue this outreach to the LGBTQ+ scientists we are planning a 2-hour panel highlighting this topic with a focus on creating safe spaces in oceans science. The meeting will have a panel of 3 LGBTQ STEM scientists. The panel will have a diverse background to reflect the multiple experiences of our panelists, and hopefully allow greater engagement with the audience.
