On Monday Magnolia House offered a safe space for the diverse Caltech postdoc community to have some fun!
The CPA aims to build community and promote awareness about issues surrounding each and every member of the Caltech postdoc community - during NPAW and beyond. Thus the event 'Diversity Mixer' was created to offer an opportunity for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to enjoy and celebrate their identities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The first Happy Hour was successful - about 25 attendees spent the evening together.
To ensure this safe place for community building an anonymous RSVP form was provided and it will be respected not to show any pictures of the event.
