A framework for improving diversity work in physics
written by Geraldine L. Cochran and Mildred Boveda
In this paper we draw on Black Feminist Theory to motivate examining diversity work in physics with an emphasis on physics education research. In our framework, we consider three major approaches to doing diversity work acknowledging and naming diversity, affirming diversity, and removing barriers to increase diversity. We examine these approaches with goals of attending to the affordances of existing diversity work and identifying the constraints for those currently seeking to diversify the field. We use intersectionality to critique diversity efforts in physics and conclude with suggestions on elevating and complicating diversity work in physics and physics education research.
