Physics and Inclusion: How are we doing?
Ximena Cid, Department of Physics, CSU Dominguez Hills
Physics is arguably one of the least diverse STEM fields. Many people and organizations have been working towards creating a more inclusive field, how good are we doing? What challenges exist? What resources are available? This talk will give details of student populations studied in the physics education literature and why we need to broaden our understanding of how we support all physics populations.
