Intro

Welcome to LGBTQ+Math Day, 2021. The event is aimed at LGBTQ+ mathematicians, students, and post-docs in the mathematical sciences, and their allies. Building on the success of the inaugural LGBTQ+Math Day, 2020, which reached the maximum 500 registrations, the day will be hosted on-line by the Fields Institute on November 18, which is LGBTQ+ STEM Day. The event is free and you can register for the event.

The day will showcase state-of-the-art mathematics conducted by LGBTQ+ mathematicians, presented in an accessible way to non-specialists. Speakers will also describe their journey navigating their academic careers as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Participants will come away inspired and learn strategies for building meaningful allyships with members of the LGBTQ+ community in mathematics.
