We held a lunchtime discussion (with free pizza!) on May 23, 2017, on the gender gap in physics and how it affects our department here at UCSB. Many students and faculty joined the conversation.
Throughout the school year we host workshops for undergraduates and graduate students offering advice on a range of topics:
Every Thursday from 11:30 am - 12:30 pm. Bring your lunch to the picnic tables behind Broida for casual conversation and dessert. All are welcome!
We host social events for students, postdocs and faculty, including liquid nitrogen icecream nights, potluck dinners and film nights, often alongside UCSB Physics GradLife.
We host regular lunch, tea, and conversation with women in physics visiting UCSB.
Our guest speaker lunches provide students in our department with the opportunity to meet researchers in their field in a conversational setting, and to encourage a dialogue about career and research experiences. We're always looking for suggestions, so if you have a particular guest speaker you'd like to meet, let the WiP committee know!
