Women and Minorities in Physics at Pitt


Foster a community that promotes the advancement and success of female and minority physicists. We will encourage a supportive and diverse  environment where everyone's voice is heard and respected. We welcome anyone who is interested in discussing topics related to women and minorities in physics at all levels.


Open to physicists at every level of academic achievement: undergrads, graduate students, postdocs, and faculty.


The Women and Minorities in Physics group at Pitt was formed to create and foster a community of aspiring physicists and astronomers.  Our goals are to:

  • Promote the work and accomplishments  of women and minorities in physics.

  • Discuss and address  issues in the department. 

  • Create and offer mentorship opportunities. 

  •  Organize outreach events for the public

  • Organize career development workshops.
