GREAT IDEAS DEI coffee hour
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: Chamberlin 4274 or online at
Abstract: Article: We will be discussing an article by Ebru Eren, Never the right time: maternity planning alongside a science career in academia[1]. We will also go over an article summary and we welcome attendees who haven't had an opportunity to read the article. Because this is a long article, we want to ask people to focus on the sections “Literature Review: Motherhood and Academia”, “Results: balancing motherhood and academic science”, and “Results: Instability.”

GREAT IDEAS stands for Group for Reading, Educating, And Talking about Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, &amp; 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.

Accessibility Statement: GMaWiP is committed to providing accessible services, activities, and materials. If you need any accommodations to fully participate in our events or have questions/feedback about the access provided, please contact us!

Physics Summer Fun
Weekly Recess
Time: 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: Bascom Hill or 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Sharon Kahn
Abstract: We hope you’ll take a 20-30 minute break on (some/all) Wednesdays this summer (12:30-1pm) to come play together! For nice days, we’ve arranged to borrow some lawn games from the L&S dean’s office and will likely bring along a frisbee and/or a hackeysack, too. Meet us on Bascom Hill (between Birge/South Hall).
In case of rain, we’ll meet indoors (5310 CH) for board games. Feel free to come play or just hang out!
