The CERN community is warmly invited to participate in raising the LGBTQ+ flag on the occasion of LGBTQ+ STEM Day. Please join us on Friday 17 November at 1 p.m. on the CERN Esplanade des Particules to celebrate this historic moment for diversity and inclusion (D&I) at CERN, more information on Indico.
By approving the D&I Programme’s proposal to raise the flag, the Directorate acknowledges the valuable contribution of the LGBTQ+ community in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This decision also reinforces CERN’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in STEM and underlines the Organization’s message that science is for everyone.
In solidarity with other scientific organisations, scientific institutes, and public institutions, CERN raises the flag for LGBTQ+ STEM Day as a sign of respect, of community, and of recognition.
