This long weekend is Pride Weekend in Calgary! WE NEED YOUR HELP! UCalgary CIDE (Chemists for Inclusivity, Diversity, and Equity) would like to commemorate this important occasion by celebrating LGTBQIA2S+ Scientists from around the World!
Send us a picture with a short biography (~100 words) of your favourite LGTBQIA2S+ chemist (or from another STEM discipline), and we will share these with the Chemistry Community through email and social media posts. PRIZES will be awarded to the biographies with the most pizzazz, so here’s your chance to get colourful, creative, funny or whatever you think will attract attention on social media and departmental emails!
Send as many entries as you would like (the more, the better!) to email@example.com before the end of Wednesday, September 4th. We prefer the files you send to be in image format so that we can directly post them to social media without affecting your style. If you would like to be tagged on Social Media along with your work of art, include your handle as well. Feel free to share this competition with the undergraduate students working in your lab!
We look forward to getting to know all of your favourite LGTBQIA2S+ role models!
