New LGBTQ club for students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Programs

Hello,

My name is Aadita Chaudhury and I am the outgoing Co-President of LGBTQ and Allies in Engineering (LGBTQAE), a student organization in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering. Since our inception in September 2011, we have been committed to creating a safe and accepting space for engineering students, staff and faculty members regardless of gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation through social, professional and leadership development events. For the upcoming year, we are aiming to open our membership to all students in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)-related fields since we feel that there is a need for discourse and association relating to LGBTQ issues which focuses on the unique needs of the people in these fields. We are interested in reaching out to your student body to join our organization as general members or to run for executive positions for the next academic year. I would like to please request you to pass on this information to your student body so that interested parties can directly get in touch with us. If you require more information about our activities and events, please feel free to get in touch with me at aadita.chaudhury@utoronto.ca. I am also available to meet with you in person to discuss further details. I look forward to hearing back from you soon regarding this.

Sincerely,

 

Aadita Chaudhury
