College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine celebrates LGBT STEM day

Staff and students from across all four campuses of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine celebrated LGBT STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) day on 5 July 2019. Inspired by Pride in STEM, a charitable trust run by an independent group of LGBT+ scientists & engineers from around the world, staff and students were invited to upload an image of themselves or their team to social media and recognise the contribution of LGBT+ people at the University in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  LGBT STEM day raises the visibility of LGBT+ people and contributes to the global push for increased diversity and inclusion in STEM. Many staff and students chose to be involved and contributed heartfelt messages of support for LGBT+ people and allies in STEM subjects.
