Title: Shattering the Lavender Ceiling - A Gay Theoretical Physicist’s Perspective
Speaker: Michael Ramsey-Musolf - Director, Amherst Center for Fundamental Interactions, Univ. of Massachusetts-Amherst
Abstract: Science advances most effectively when the scientific community embraces and supports scientists from all backgrounds and identities. In this talk, I focus on the particular challenges to full inclusion in the scientific enterprise faced by LGBTQIA physicists – the “lavender ceiling”. I will share insights from my own experience as an out gay theoretical physicist and from the recent American Physical Society climate study. I will also highlight some “best practices” that members of the Jefferson Laboratory community may adopt to engender a more inclusive climate for sexual and gender minorities at the Lab.
Details: Tuesday, March 28, 3:30-5:30 p.m. in the Auditorium
