31 October 2019 - Being Rainbow in STEMM
Turing Circle & Out for Australia, in partnership with DXC, are hosting the first instalment of Queer Careers in Melbourne. This event series tackles issues that LGBTQIA+ people face in the workplace, and focuses on helping everyone transition from being out and proud on campus to being their confident, authentic selves in workplaces that champion diversity.
In this talk we are focusing on being LGBTQIA+ in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) fields. STEMM careers have traditionally been challenging for queer and non-binary professionals, but things are slowly changing as more workplaces embrace diversity, equity and inclusion daily.
‘Being Rainbow in STEMM' is a panel discussion on the unique experiences, motivations and successes that Queer STEMM professionals, academics and students have shared.
We will have a panel of speakers at the talk and they are:
* Dr. Deanne Fisher - Deputy Director & ARC Future Fellow at the Centre for Astrophysics & Supercomputing, Swinburne University
* Christina Dilipkumar - Civil engineer with John Holland and currently working on the West Gate project.
* Eleanor McMurtry - Tutor at the University of Melbourne with a background in Informatics, Mathematical Physics, & Computer Science
* Tom Rainger - Civil & Environmental Engineer at GHD
* Brendan Nicholls - Scientist in humanoid robotics at Telstra
Date: Thursday 31 October 2019
Time: 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Location: Level 19, 360 Collins Street, Melbourne
