As physicists interested in the advancement of the discipline we must address systemic barriers in academia that have led to a gross underrepresentation of minorities, particularly Black Americans, in our field.

This webinar features a panel of physicists who have been actively involved with increasing diversity in physics and improving its culture. The panel discusses why everyone from students to teachers to professors to administrators has an important role in building a diverse next generation of physicists. The panel shares ideas and concrete actions on what each of these groups can do to work toward this goal.

This is the first event in a series of opportunities to get involved. The webinar was hosted by APS CEO Dr. Kate Kirby.
