GREAT IDEAS DEI coffee hour
Date: Wednesday, October 19th
Time: 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Place: Chamberlin 5280 or online at
Abstract: We will be discussing this paper in physics education research: “How well-intentioned white male physicists maintain ignorance of inequity and justify inaction.” (url: ) This is a long paper, so we will ask people to focus on the following Sections: Introduction (p1-3), Summary of Findings, Discussion, and Recommendations (p33-37). (We will also go over an article summary and we welcome attendees who haven't had an opportunity to read the article.)

GREAT IDEAS stands for Group for Reading, Educating, And Talking about Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Advocacy in Science. It is a multimedia reading group dedicated to amplifying the experiences of underrepresented groups in science and academia in order to become better advocates for our peers. GREAT IDEAS is open to everyone (students/ faculty/ staff/ etc), and all are welcome and encouraged to engage with the material and contribute to the discussions. To keep a welcoming and safe environment for everyone, we ask that everyone understand and adhere to our community guidelines for the discussions. If you would like to submit an article for a future GREAT IDEAS discussion, you can do so on this form.
Host: GMaWiP and Climate and Diversity Committee (contact Jessie Thwaites or R. Sassella with questions)
