About

The Women in Physics organization at Harvard University is composed of undergraduate physics concentrators, graduate students, and postdocs in the Physics department.

The organization has the following goals:

  1. To provide an environment where women physicists can support each other and seek advice.
  2. To help undergraduate and special students, predominantly women, learn more about active areas of physics research, graduate life, and postdoc life.
  3. To increase retention of female concentrators and graduate students where it may be adversely affected by the existing gender gap within physics.

We always welcome new members, as well as individuals who are interested in organizing events for the group!

We also now have specific mailing lists for undergraduates, grad students, and postdocs!
