APS Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance
Description

In June 2020, the Ohio State Department of Physics was selected as part of the first 2020 cohort for the APS Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance (APS-IDEA) Network.  This international network of physics departments and labs will work together to develop and implement long-term plans to increase the equity, diversity, and inclusiveness of individual departments and the field overall, utilizing best practices for institutional change. OSU Physics’ team includes undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty.  Three team members attended the kick-off virtual workshop on June 15, 2020.   The team is committed to working together and with the department on this important path to the future.

Although the team is from the physics department, there will be substantial collaboration between physics and astronomy. Resources are located here.
