African American Women in Physics
Welcome, and thank you for visiting AAWIP.com. The goal of this website is to honor the women who paved the way, to inspire future physicists, and to connect with allies interested in promoting diversity in Physics and other STEM fields. We highlights the wide variety of academic backgrounds and career options for physics students and professionals.
We celebrate the presence of African American Women who:
– who have a Ph.D. in physics, astronomy, astrophysics, etc, as well as graduate students working towards these degrees.
– who work professionally in physics and astronomy, but who have terminal degrees in other related fields like materials science, geophysics or electrical engineering.
– who do research on increasing the number African American women with Ph.D.s in physics and astronomy.
