2019-02-13: NOGLSTP at 2019 AAAS Annual Meeting

NOGLSTP will have a large footprint again this year at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. We will be helping with the programming for the diversity continental breakfast in the Expo on Friday, February 15. On Saturday we will be convening a 90-minute scientific discussion session entitled “Persistence of Sexual Minorities in the STEM Pipeline – from Education to Workplace,” with NOGLSTP’s LGBTQ reception following the session. Speakers will include Erin Cech (U. of Michigan) presenting “The STEM Inclusion Study: LGBTQ Professional in Science and Engineering Workplaces,” Joey Nelson (Stanford U.) presenting “Productivity Measures of Participants in the Queer in STEM 2.0 Study,” and Bryce Hughes (Montana State U.) presenting “Coming Out and Leaving STEM: Experiences of LGBTQ STEM Undergraduates.” NOGLSTP will also present a Career Development Workshop on Sunday, entitled: “LGBTQ+ in Academia and the Workplace: Your Rights and the Law.” NOGLSTP has been given a free table at the AAAS Expo. All LGBTQ+ attendees at AAAS and local area STEM-folk are encouraged to attend and support these events.
