STTA Live! LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)

Research consistently shows that LGBTQ+ students and professionals in STEM-related fields experience disadvantages, social isolation, and harassment more often than their straight and cisgender peers. LGBTQ+ identified professionals in STEM fields often report that they are not given the resources that they need to do meaningful work and that their expertise is consistently devalued.

Day of (No) Silence 2023: Rising Up

GLSEN’s Day of Silence is a national day of action pushing back against the silencing of LGBTQ+ youth and the erasure of their experiences. As LGBTQ+ students and educators across the country face attacks on their rights to access affirming books, healthcare, and even the right to be called by the right name and pronouns at school, we use this day as a collective protest to demonstrate the power of our voices and the impact of our silence.

This year, the Day of Silence theme is Rising Up. As part of that theme, educators across the country will spend the day speaking up in every space online and offline in defense of the rights of LGBTQ+ students. In this time when LGBTQ+ students are being targeted, it is more critical than ever for adults to loudly claim a day of NO silence.
