Live Talks "Diverse Science"

In the representation of scientists, a very homogeneous, mostly cis-male, white image still dominates. Yet science has always been much more diverse! 

In the Live Talk series Diverse Science we show the diversity that has always existed in research. Researchers from different disciplines and institutions present their research, talk about their life's journey and share a biographical topic of their choice with the participants. A moderator accompanies the discussion.

Find out who is behind the research, how these people have found their way to their research topics and what shapes them and get into conversation with the people.

The series takes place in cooperation with the LGBTQ+ STEM Berlin Community.
