Happy PRIDE Month

Embrace Diversity, Ignite Discovery

At SLS, we believe in supporting and uplifting the communities we serve. Therefore, we are thrilled to announce that we are making a £100 donation to the Notts LGBT+ Network, an organisation dedicated to supporting Nottinghamshire's vibrant LGBTQ+ community.

Join us in celebrating LGBTQ+ scientists, promoting diversity, and embracing the power of scientific discovery!

In recognition of the vital role played by the LGBTQ+ community in driving scientific advancements, we would like to highlight four exceptional scientists who have made significant contributions to their respective fields.

Alan Turing: As a brilliant mathematician and computer scientist, Turing played a pivotal role in breaking the Enigma code during World War II. His work laid the foundation for modern computing and artificial intelligence. 

Sally Ride: Ride made history as the first American woman in space. Her achievements as an astronaut and physicist inspired generations and shattered gender barriers in STEM fields.

Dr. Jack Drescher: A renowned psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Dr. Drescher has been a leading advocate for LGBTQ+ mental health. His research and activism have greatly contributed to understanding and supporting the well-being of the LGBTQ+ community.

Dr. William Moerner and Dr. Stefan Hell: These exceptional chemists received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their groundbreaking work on super-resolution microscopy, enabling scientists to see the inner workings of cells with unprecedented clarity.
