Peer Mentorship Program SU(5)

2020-08-20T01:41:25+00:00August 20th, 2020|

Peer Mentorship Program SU(5) SU(5) is a peer mentorship program for first year graduate students in physics and astronomy. For many students, especially underrepresented students, the transition from undergraduate to graduate school can be difficult, as students balance TA responsibilities, classes, and research. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent discussions about racism, inclusion, and diversity, we anticipate incoming graduate students will face additional challenges in the transition to graduate school. Our goal is to make this transition easier. SU(5) is organized by and for graduate students. Our founders and current leadership team are: Cady van Assendelft, Stanford George [...]

Picture a Scientist

2020-08-20T01:37:33+00:00June 1st, 2020|

A new documentary provides insights on how to make science more diverse, equitable and open to all The documentary film Picture a Scientist features three female scholars: biologist Nancy Hopkins, geoscientist Jane Willenbring, and chemist Raychelle Burks. Stories of their experiences in academic science describe “how intersections of sexism and racism shape experiences differently for white women and for women of color and how implicit bias both generates inequity and prevents us from noticing it. It reveals injustices ranging from subtle slights and salary gaps to bullying and physical assault. And it reminds us of the power of women’s collective action; [...]

Helping Shape the FUTURE of Women Scientists

2020-08-20T01:39:37+00:00November 21st, 2018|

FUTURE's First Event The inaugural FUTURE of Physics event was held at Caltech November 1 and 2, 2018. During the two day program, 33 undergraduate women participated in a series of panels and workshops on a range of topics from big-picture science, student life, to workshops on preparing applications. Sophia Gaynes, an undergraduate student from UC Berkeley who took part in the program, recalls: “Prior to FUTURE, I was feeling unsure of my place in the world of physics, unsure about whether I wanted to go to grad school, and overwhelmed by the process of applying. And [...]
