LGBT people in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) face some unique challenges compared to other minorities in the workplace, both due to their lack of visibility as a social group and the prevailing climate within STEM . Although there are a number of support networks within the UK, LGBT people in STEM still have to overcome issues, ranging from homophobic and transphobic attitudes of other members of staff to worries about the security of their employment. In this talk, I will give an overview of the academic climate experienced by LGBT people in the workplace, specifically in STEM as well as suggesting some possible strategies to address the under-representation of LGBT people in STEM .

This talk is part of the Cavendish Inspiring Womxn Talks series.
