Women+ in Physics
Members meet Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell in 2018
The Women+ in Physics group at Montana State University was started fall of 2017 by Dr. Amy Reines, a faculty member of the Physics Department. We focus on creating a supportive community climate of inclusivity with a long term goal of increasing the number of women and underrepresented genders in the field. Our membership is open to all physicists interested in participating, regardless of career stage. The current group includes undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members.
We meet twice a month, and engage in discussions involving the climate both within the department and in the field as a whole. We also schedule meetings with visiting colloquium speakers identifying with underrepresented genders, actively lead outreach activities, foster mentoring programs for undergraduates, and promote professional development within our community.
