      Looking from within, we want to think that the world of science and technology is an environment in which rationality and equity they come standard. Environments in which it is essential to work on solid and demonstrable foundations, avoiding prejudice and not submitting to dogmas are certainly privileged places on paper. But reality shows that, in terms of people who carry out their work in the world of science, it is not easy to avoid prejudices, when they affect sexual diversity or, as has been so clearly seen, in gender issues.

      In this seminar? we will take a tour of the reality that we are going learning about LGTBIQA + people and scientific environments, and How we have seen it necessary to bear in mind that the world of science needs to be equal and diverse, because that diversity is wealth that also facilitates better research.

      At the university and research level, sexual harassment and due to sex they are mostly silenced, and some Studies encrypt its occurrence in percentages higher than 50% of the women surveyed. The consequences of these forms of harassment are serious, both individually and institutionally, and can expel many brilliant minds from the academic and research career. In this seminar we will discuss actions necessary to prevent and eradicate sexual harassment and for sex in our closest environment, raising the advantages and disadvantages of the different actions that we have carried out
