Founded in 2018 by Dr. Lauren Esposito, 500 Queer Scientists is a visibility campaign for LGBTQ+ people and their allies working in STEM and STEM-supporting jobs-collectively, a powerful force of scientific progress and discovery.
In this program, Esposito will discuss an exhibit currently in development to tell the first-person stories of LGBTQ+ women and gender minorities STEM professions, centering people of color. This exhibit will be freely available for science and technology museums, underscoring a new chapter in the visibility of LGBTQ+ people in STEM. We'll also hear from some of the AAAS IF/THEN Ambassadors featured in the exhibit about their cutting-edge research and contributions to STEM fields, as well as how our intersectional identities make us better scientists.
After Dark Online: 500 Queer Scientists at the Exploratorium is made possible with the generous support of General Motors.
