Are you a queer-identifying person in the STEM fields? Join us and other graduate students, faculty, and staff in STEM for a social hour and build our community at the UO.
When: October 12 at 5:30pm
Where: Sam Bond’s Brewery
Note: The Brewery is on 8th St, NOT Sam Bond’s Garage in the Whit!
Are you a queer-identifying scientist? Would you like to meet other LGBTQ+ STEM graduate students, faculty, and staff?
Join us for our September social hour on September 13 at 6pm. We will take in the last bit of sunshine before Fall weather kicks in on the patio at Elkhorn Brewery (or, if need be, inside).
Being inspired by the First International Day of LGBTQ+ People in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) held on July 5th, 2018 and 500queerscientists.com , we have highlighted four prominent LGBTQ+ people in STEM for this year’s Eugene Pride celebration (week of August 11). Check out their contributions to science and technology and how they have lived as an out person in the STEM fields! Thanks for inspiring us and being out role models in STEM, Profs. Bertozzi, Conway, and Mavalvala and Alan Turing. Here’s to many more out STEMinists making impacts in their fields!
LGBT+ in STEM is seeking board nominations for the 2018-2019 AY to fill a vacant seat on the board.
Our leadership board runs as an ad-hoc committee of 4 people. We meet about once a month to plan upcoming social events or educational events and discuss current issues at the cross-section of the LGBTQ+ community and the sciences.
Any graduate student, faculty, or staff in the sciences who identifies as LGBTQ+ may be nominated
Nominations can be peer or self nominated
Nominations are open from August 10 to August 24, 2018.
Nominees will be contacted by the board and asked to submit a few sentences about what you would bring to the board/LGBT+ in STEM organization and why you would like to be involved.

Folx! Join us for lunch to kick-off Eugene Pride on Friday, August 10 at 12 pm in the EMU Falling Sky. A Friday lunch you say? Yes! Because it’s Summer and we know grad students, faculty, and staff are still on campus and need to eat lunch! We also LGBT+ in STEM decals for you! Some come socialize, kick off Eugene Pride, and grab a decal to share your rainbow brain.
Additionally, be on the look-out around the science complex for posters of LGBT+ scientists we admire! These posters are a way to create visibility throughout the sciences. If you would like a poster set to hang-up, please let us know. If you have a scientist you think we should profile, send us an email by Thursday, August 2.
Here’s to Eugene Pride!
Join us to celebrate the end of Spring term/beginning of Summer.
We will have our ally-inclusive social event on Friday, June 1 at 5:30 pm at Agate Alley.
We hope you, your friends, co-workers, and whoever will join us!
Lisa and Kenyon joined the greater UO LGBT+ community for the return of DuckOUT. We are looking forward to another meet up with members of the community outside of the sciences. Hopefully we’ll also see some of you on Monday at our first happy hour of spring term!
LGBT+ in STEM Monday at 6:30 at Elkhorn Brewery.
