Queers in Science - on Neurodiversity

Book tickets

Queers in Science is an Australian initiative aiming to build community and improve support for LGBTQIA+ people working in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) in Australia. We are returning to Midsumma for the 3rd year running to present our Queers in Science Lecture Series. These lectures display the amazing work of queer scientists in areas of timely interest to the general public. This year’s two lectures are on the topics of Neurodiversity and First Nations Knowledge.

In this first instalment, we recognise that the brain of every individual is unique, meaning not everyone learns or thinks the same way. To reduce the stigma around neurodivergence and mental illness, we will explore not only the science behind it, featuring queer neuroscientists with expertise, but also have a panel discussion with neurodivergent individuals sharing their day-to-day experience. After the lecture, light refreshments will be served and attendees have the opportunity to mingle and interact with the speakers.
