Detail Page

written by Alexandru Maries and Chandralekha Singh
Physics is one of the least diverse of all science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines with damaging stereotypes about who belongs and who can excel in it. Physics learning environments are generally not inclusive or equitable, with students from historically marginalized groups often reporting an unwelcoming climate. In general, the culture of physics is competitive with a dearth of humanity in interpersonal interactions and communications. Here we provide a narrative review of the research on diversity, equity and inclusion in undergraduate physics learning environments, focusing on women and ethnic and racial minority students, and make recommendations for how to improve this dire current situation.
