To ensure that women and gender minorities feel represented at this event, APS’s Advancing Graduate Leadership (AGL) team has invited a diverse group of speakers to present at the conference on August 4-5, 2022, in Washington, DC. These speakers come from many different backgrounds and bring a wealth of expertise in physics, advocacy, human resources, social work, and more. We are grateful to them for bringing their invaluable knowledge and experiences to this event.
