The AIP National Task Force to Elevate African American Representation in Undergraduate Physics & Astronomy (TEAM-UP) released a report in early 2020 on their two-year study of the experiences of African American physics students. The report includes recommendations and a call to action for institutions, faculty, and students who are interested in supporting the success of African American undergraduates in physics.
In this third webinar (view previous webinars), we will inform attendees about the results and recommendations from the TEAM-UP report and highlight the ongoing work focused on implementation of the recommendations within the physics community. The first half of the webinar will include a series of short presentations about the report and next steps. The second half will include a Q&A with a panel of academics who are currently using the TEAM-UP recommendations to make changes in their departments.
After attending, webinar attendees will take away a better understanding of:
The presentation, panel and Q&A will be recorded, so please register even if you cannot attend live and you will receive a link to the recording. The webinar will be hosted by APS CEO Dr. Kate Kirby and APS President-Elect S. James Gates, Jr. (Brown University, Ford Foundation Professor of Physics & Affiliate Professor of Mathematics).
