Check out our brand new original web-series called Industry, which takes a closer look at LGBTQ+ STEM professionals and the experiences that led them to careers within science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Produced in partnership with the Howmet Aerospace Foundation, this series is designed to inspire LGBTQ+ youth like you to consider exciting (and often overlooked) careers in STEM.
Industry follows five LGBTQ+ professionals in the bioinformatics, immunology, neuropsychology, epidemiology, and engineering industries. The folks you’ll meet include Billy Jacobson, a Google coder whose drag alter ego Anna Lytical is known for her viral educational TikToks; Reiss Reid PhD, a British-Jamaican senior research scientist and t-cell immunologist; and Jiwandeep Kohli, a Doctoral Research Fellow in neuropsychology who is also an accomplished pastry chef and a semi-finalist from Season 4 of the Great American Baking Show.
As with all of our original series from the It Gets Better Project, Industry will be accompanied by a free-to-access educational guide (EduGuide) coming later this month.
Watch the series here! New episodes every Tuesday in December.
