If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Samuel McDermott.

The Department of Physics at the University of Cambridge is proud to announce the launch event for Cavendish Prism – the department’s LGBTQ network. The aim of the network is to support LGBTQ members of the department through social events, visibility initiatives and representation within the department. The network was made possible with support from the Cavendish community forum and the head of the department.

Our launch event will be introduced by the head of the department, Prof Andy Parker. We are pleased to have Dr Laura Reyes (Programme Manager, Inclusion and Diversity, Royal Society of Chemistry) as our launch event speaker. She will be talking about the recent joint report by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the Institute of Physics (IOP) and the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS): ‘Exploring the workplace for LGBT + physical scientists’. She will also be discussing recent findings from the RSC ’s report: ‘Is publishing in the chemical sciences gender biased?’.

Tea, coffee and cake will be provided.

All of our events welcome both LGBTQ + and allies.

If you are not a member of the Department of Physics, please wait at the Cavendish Reception to be brought to the room.
