About this event

This seminar will explore LGBTQ EDI literature in academia and how to prepare for your future careers as an LGBTQ member in STEM. Dr Nessa Carey (Visiting Professor, Department of Surgery and Cancer, Imperial College London) will detail how academia is unlikely to be your final destination and the increasing likelihood that you will have more than one career in STEM. Being a good researcher will get you to a certain point but it’s the transferable skills that will help to excel you. Nessa will summarise how to position yourself for success, reflecting on her own experiences of diversity in STEM.
