Diversity & Inclusion

Our department is committed to promoting inclusivity and diversity in the physics community by bringing attention to underrepresented groups through our activities and courses, and developing action plans to increase our diversity. Below we list some useful resources that work towards these ends.

Women, Minorities, and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering
(National Science Foundation, 2019).
Provides statistical information about these groups in science and engineering education and employment.

Diversity Initiatives
(American Institute of Physics)
Activities and resources promoting increased diversity, equity, and inclusion in the physical sciences.

From Passion to Action: Levers & Tools for Making Physics Inclusive and Equitable
(American Physical Society, 2020)
Webinar on issues and actions regarding inclusivity in the physics community.

Black History Month Physics Profiles
(National Society of Black Physicists)
A site profiling Black Physicists in order to inform the world about the present day Black scientists that are at the forefront of scientific endeavor, and inspire future generations of Black scientists and engineers.

Minorities in Physics
(American Physical Society)
Resource page dedicated to providing tools to improve inclusion of underrepresented minorities in physics.

Diversity and Inclusion in STEMM Collection
(National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine)
Collection of documents intended to provide a roadmap for increasing involvement of absent and underrepresented minorities in science and engineering.
