Title: Intersectionality in Gender Equality Policies for Physics
Implementation
Field(s) of Action: * Structural Integration of Gender Equality
Objectives:* To address multiple discrimination based on gender, race, social class, etc.
* To avoid the reproduction of different discriminations in our gender equality policies
Target Group(s): Women researchers
Minorities researchers
Description: The American Physical Society is trying to integrate the principle of intersectionality in their equality policies. This is why they have different committees, programmes and sections in their web page for “Women in Physics”, “Minorities in Physics” and “LGBT Physicists”.
This is not a concrete measure to be implemented once and see the results in the short term. This is a long term approach for a gender equality policy in physics and this is why forms part of the “Structural integration of gender equality” field of action.
