The Princeton Women in Physics Group consists of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty in the Princeton Physics Department. Our group seeks to provide support, mentorship, and career development opportunities to its members. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people. We believe in supporting the many intersections of our members’ identities, such as (but not limited to) race, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic class, and immigrant/indigenous status.
- Every two weeks we hold lunches that often feature an invited professor or other guest speaker. We regularly invite women from associated departments to join us.
- We regularly hold career development panels, such as “Becoming and Being a Postdoc” which featured four female Princeton postdocs.
- We regularly hold Ally Workshops to better educate department members on how to be better allies to women and other minorities in physics.
- We started a G1 mentoring program for incoming physics grad students.
- We hold events for UWiP (Undergraduate Women in Physics) such as workshops on applying to graduate school.
- We do outreach! Some recent efforts include organizing a 2017 APS CUWiP (Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics) at Princeton and participating in the 2019 and 2020 APS CUWiPs (at TCNJ and Temple University).
