Although no formal reception for LGBT people happens at the spring ACS national meetings, there are some activities you all might be interested in, as follows:
Friday March 23, 1-4 pm:
Open meeting of the Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Board, Marriott Marquis Marina Hotel, Mission Hills Room. This is an opportunity for LGBT chemists to raise questions, concerns, solutions, and visibility to a fairly new committee that is trying to address D&I for all
people, including LGBT.
Sunday March 25, 5:30-7:30 pm:
ACS Diversity Reception, San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, San Diego Ballroom Salon C
This is probably oriented to women and minorities, but if LGBT-folk show up, we will be part of the party.
Monday March 26, 6pm:
LGBT Chemists and Allies go OUT on the town, Sevilla Restaurant and Tapas Bar, 353 Fifth Ave, San Diego CA
