Title: Conferences for undergraduate Women in Physics
Implementation
Field(s) of Action: * Presence and visibility
* Gender Dimension in Research and Education
Objectives:* To encourage, support and inspire young women physicists
* To provide useful information on the professional-research career
Target Group(s): Female students
Description: The American Physical Society Conference for undergraduate women in physics is a three-day regional conference for undergraduate physics majors. It takes place each year at multiple sites throughout the US and Canada.
The goal of the Conference is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.
A typical program will include research talks by faculty, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, presentations and discussions about women in physics, laboratory tours, student research talks, a student poster session, and several meals during which presenters and students interact with each other.
These conferences are disseminated through Linkedin and financial assistance is provided.
