Penn State is delighted to serve as a site for the 2023 Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics.
The Penn State Physics department is a member of the APS Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (APS-IDEA). APS-IDEA is a new initiative with a mission of empowering and supporting physics departments, laboratories, and other organizations to identify and enact strategies for improving equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). It will do so by establishing a community of transformation.
Physics and Astronomy for Women+
PAW+ (Physics and Astronomy for Women+) is a club of undergraduates, grad students, and post-docs dedicated to advancing the status of women, gender minorities, and underrepresented groups in Physics and Astronomy by providing a network of support and a forum to discuss systemic bias in these fields. Anyone is welcome to join us for social events, professional development opportunities, outreach activities, and more!
