oSTEM strives to provide a safe space for all people to express themselves. To that end, we have and hold ourselves to a high-level and broad diversity policy, built around respect for individuals regardless of where they are on life’s journey. oSTEM prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, race, color, ethnicity, citizenship, cultural background, socioeconomic status, age, disability, religion, or veteran status. Furthermore, oSTEM prohibits any harassment that detracts from the learning experience or threatens an individual in any form.
The climate for LGBTQA people in the United States has greatly improved from even a few years ago. We respect individuals request to be unlisted in our membership directory.
In addition, oSTEM never shares personal information for purposes of marketing. oSTEM does share information with sponsors for recruiting purposes only.
