About Us

Out in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics at Mount Sinai (oSTEM at Mount Sinai) has been a chapter of oSTEM since spring of 2018. We are dedicated to increasing the participation of people who identify with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, nonbinary, asexual, queer, (LGBTQA+) and ally communities in disciplines related to science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM).

The goals of the oSTEM at Mount Sinai chapter are:

(a) To serve and affirm people who identify as LGBTQA+.

(b) To promote the participation from and development of LGBTQA+ communities in STEM disciplines.

(c) To educate and develop students of STEM disciplines, preparing them for graduation and successful careers.

(d) To support and contribute to the dynamic network sustained by oSTEM Incorporated.

(e) To provide education, outreach, and professional resources to local communities when appropriate.

(f) To actively recruit and address the needs of diverse LGBTQA+ groups within the Mount Sinai community, inclusive of those who are historically underrepresented with regards to gender, gender identity or expression, and ethnic background.
