Principal’s message on inclusivity at the University:
‘As a truly international and world-class university, our ambition is to be a beacon of inclusivity. We will achieve this through an approach that empowers our whole community – through a combination of deliberate steps sponsored by the University’s leadership and a determined shift in culture that makes sure everyone is embraced, from students, academic and professional staff, to our alumni. Inclusivity will inform and affect policy and practice across the piece. We do this because it is right but also because diverse organisations work smarter, encourage innovation, and maximise the creativity that is fundamental to academic excellence.’

Event: Out Thinkers @ St Andrews
Time and date: 6.15pm-7.45pm, Tuesday 26 November 2019
Venue: Large Rehersal Room, Students' Union building
Attendees: All are welcome
Out Thinkers @ St Andrews (in association with Pride in STEM) will showcase the talent of our LGBTIQ+ researchers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), providing a platform where people can talk about their exciting research while truly being themselves and celebrating that STEM is for everyone.
The event is free, but please book a ticket in advance via: https://events.st-andrews.ac.uk/events/out-thinkers-st-andrews/
This event is open to everyone, no matter your sexual orientation or gender identity, and the aim is to make the talks accessible to both science and non-science audience members.
Our incredible LGBTIQ+ researchers will be talking about: ‘Do chimpanzees understand how others see the world? How do children’s views on fairness vary across cultures? How are human-computer interfaces changing? What are quantum materials and why are they useful? Can we harness the power of sunlight to drive chemical reactions?’ The talks will be followed by a short Q&A session, where audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions and raise comments. A reception, with food and drink, will be held after the talks in the foyer on the ground floor of the building.

The event is free but registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
