Women in Physics

The aim of NC State's Women in Physics group is to build a community where we can 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. Anybody who identifies as a woman in physics or a related fields, as well as their supporters and allies of any gender are welcome to join us. The group maintains a resource room in 110 Riddick, where you can find a small library and a place to work.
