“If we have a more diverse group of physicists, it will make the physics we do better,” says Barbara Whitten, professor of physics at Colorado College. Currently, about 90 percent of employed Ph.D. physicists are men, and about 85 percent are white. Whitten wants to welcome more women and people of color into the physics community, both as faculty members and as students. She is helping to organize a website to connect physicists and facilitate mentoring relationships.
