Wednesday, June 24, 2:00 - 4:00 PM EDT

This webinar will feature a panel of physicists who have been actively involved with increasing diversity in physics and improving its culture. The panel will discuss why everyone from students to teachers to professors to administrators has an important role in building a diverse next generation of physicists. The panel will share ideas and concrete actions on what each of these groups can do to work toward this goal.
