LGBTQ+ in STEM and Industry Career Panel
Presented by SAGA
The Sexuality and Gender Acceptance Association (SAGA) hosted an LGBTQ+ in STEM and Industry Career Panel Wednesday morning, October 31, 2018, on the campus of Dakota County Technical College.

Three panelists from the LGBTQ+ community, Seven Bailey, a welding instructor at Dunwoody College of Technology, Torri Jordan, a second-year student at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and Mohamed Yakub, a science outreach and education coordinator at the University of Minnesota's College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences, took part in a discussion with DCTC students, staff and faculty.

"The panelists talked about their experiences in their various STEM and industry fields," said Natalie Shrestha, an enrollment advisor and financial aid specialist at the college who also serves as staff advisor for SAGA. "The purpose of the panel was to give insights on how members of the LGBTQ+ community can have successful STEM careers."
