“Success Together”: Physics departmental practices supporting LGBTQ+ women and women of color
written by Erin M. Schipull, Xandria R. Quichocho, and Eleanor W. Close
Existing research on underrepresented/minority students focuses mainly on gender or race/ethnicity and ignores the intersection of identities of women of color and the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ+) students. This research is also typically conducted at Predominately White Institutions. A large number of physics degrees earned by racial minorities have been earned from Minority Serving Institutions. This project examines the personal narratives of women of color, LGBTQ+ women, and women who exist at the intersection of these identities at Texas State, a Hispanic Serving Institution, to better understand the systems in place that helped them succeed through their physics degree. We define success to be recognition of self as a physicist and completion, or being near completion, of a physics degree. Participants reported that widely shared discussions around equity, department structures supporting collaboration, and a culture of teamwork helped them achieve success together.
