Women in PMA (WiPMA)

WiPMA members learn effective negotiation techniques from Katherine Barr.


Women in Physics, Math and Astronomy (WiPMA) aims to support undergraduate, graduate and postdoc women in the PMA division by creating an inclusive community and providing opportunities for professional and personal development. We achieve this by inviting women scientists to campus as speakers, hosting workshops aimed at building skills and confidence, discussing peer-reviewed studies related to gender in STEM, and holding social events for all *women in the PMA department.

*We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women and non-binary people. We believe in supporting the many intersections of our members’ identities, such as (but not limited to) race, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic class, and immigrant/indigenous status.
