Join us on June 17, 2021 at 2 p.m. EDT for a conversation in honor of National LGBTQ+ Pride Month about what it means to be an ally, understanding some of the barriers faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community, and what you as an active ally can do to help break down those barriers. The panel discussion will be moderated by Charles Cockrell, associate director for strategy at NASA’s Glenn Research Center, and will feature:

• Melanie Saunders, NASA deputy associate administrator
• Sarah J. Phillips, visual information specialist for the Image Technology Center at NASA’s Glenn Research Center
