An Evening with 500 Queer Scientists


This event at The Calyx in Sydney on Tuesday 19 February will share stories of LGBTQI scientists in Sydney who have successfully followed a career path in academia while being out in the lab and to their peers.


The 500 Queer Scientists initiative launched in June 2018 and highlights the real need for increased visibility of LGBTQI scientists in academia. The issues are complex, but visibility and role models are part of the solution.

This event will provoke positive debate and help promote science and academia as an inclusive, forward-thinking, and viable career path for bright young queer minds!


General Admission $20 and Student Concession $10. To see the list of speakers and to purchase tickets please click here.
