Women in Physics

The aim of NC State's Women in Physics group is to promote equity, with a focus on gender issues, within the Physics Department. We share expertise and experiences, and thereby gain tools and confidence to help us succeed in our educational and professional goals. We meet for regular outreach, career development, networking and social activities. We welcome people of all genders — cis, trans, and non-binary — in physics and related fields. The group maintains a resource room in 110 Riddick, where you can find a small library and a place to work.
