The Importance of Mentorship for LGBTQ+ Scientists

For an LGBTQ+ scientist, finding a mentor who shares their scientific expertise as well as their identity can be challenging — especially given the isolation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet connecting with a thriving LGBTQ+ community in science can provide an essential support system. It’s also the best way to find mentors who can guide you along your career path and help open new doors.

Join this webinar to hear from LGBTQ+ STEM professionals as they share their unique challenges and experiences, and offer advice both for fellow LGBTQ+ scientists and for how institutions can support them.
