STEM Equals is a four year, mixed methods research and impact project at the University of Strathclyde focused on women and LGBT people in STEM in both academia and in industry. Funded by EPSRC for Inclusion Matters, focused on furthering equality, diversity and inclusion, and by the University of Strathclyde with matched funding, the project will focus on working cultures, including better understanding and addressing systemic inequalities faced by women and LGBT staff in STEM disciplines. Working with industry partner BAM Nuttall, there is potential for local, national, and global impact from the project findings, both within and beyond higher education. The poster provides an overview of the project's aims and planned research, initiatives, and activities. Additionally, it outlines the outreach and dissemination strategy of the project including Twitter (@STEMEquals) and a website in preparation (www.stemequals.ac.uk) that will showcase profiles, blog posts, podcasts, and updates from the ongoing research.
