TJ Ronnigen, NOGLSTP Board Member
KIND Research Scientist TJ Ronningen volunteers as a board member with the National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals (NOGLSTP). In March, NOGLSTP hosted its Out To Innovate summit at the University of Southern California. At Out To Innovate, NOGLSTP invites lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied students and professionals in STEM to join for a weekend of networking, career development, and skill building. TJ attended the summit and organized NOGLSTP’s annual awards for the LGBTQ Educator, Engineer, and Scientist of the Year for 2019.
We're very proud to see members of our research group working for causes that are important to them as well as support minority involvement in the STEM fields. Thanks you, TJ, for setting an example for all of us to follow!
