“Drawing on research and experience, Lenna Cumberbatch explores some of the small things that can be done to move towards equality of opportunity in STEM”

The Scent of Attraction

I was asked to host Dr Tristram Wyatt for one of the Royal Society’s Cafe Scientifique events aligning with their #OutInSTEM series of events London Pride in 2017.


The Roaring Girl

I was asked by the Royal Shakespeare Company to provide some insight into Drag King life in London. The Roaring Girl features a girl who dresses like a boy! It’s on in Stratford-Upon-Avon until September.

The Power of Diversity

I was recently invited to join Fiona Woolf, the Lord Mayor of London, Australian lawyer and company director Cheryl Bart, paralympian and independent cross bench peer Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson for the WOW 2014 panel, The Squeezed Middle – The Lord Mayor’s Challenge.  My introduction starts at 33min.
