Navigating your career in STEM is tough enough – but initiatives like KCL Womxn in STEM society are seeking to level the playing field and support equality and diversity in sciences. The society is formed by students, professionals, academics and researchers, with the aim to represent womxn, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ scientists at faculty level and fights for better working conditions – as well as hosting events to build an inclusive network of support for all.
