Celebrate gender diversity and explore the science behind our everyday lives at Science Speakeasy: Evolution and Gender Revolution.

Dr. Stryker won an Emmy Award for her documentary Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafeteria.

Science Speakeasy, presented by The Leakey Foundation, inspires enthusiasm for science in a fun, spirited and accessible way by pairing unique speakers with signature cocktails, delicious food, music, interactive activities, and more.

Doors open at 6:00 pm for drinks, food from Nyum Bai and other fun activities.

The talks start at 7:00 pm.
