New Science

 Jan. 5, 2023 - March 25, 2023 

Queer and intersectional identities are revolutionizing how science gets done. For most of its history, science has housed barriers. Race, gender, wealth, and identity have often defined who is able to see themselves in science. Growing evidence shows that LGBTQ+ people in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, math, and medicine) are statistically underrepresented.

New Science: Queer and Intersectional Identities Are Revolutionizing How Science Gets Done is a pop-up exhibit designed by the California Academy of Sciences to introduce visitors to a diverse range of scientists. The exhibit features banners of 23 LGBTQ+ women and gender minority scientists from across the STEMM disciplines and across the country. 

Join us in celebrating the scientists who are creating a world that is more inclusive than exclusive, powered by the identities and communities to which they belong.
