AIP and its Member Societies are committed to promoting increased diversity, equity, and inclusion in the physical sciences. Research shows that diverse perspectives lead to better decision-making and better outcomes. This site brings together the wealth of activities and resources for under-represented minorities in the physical sciences undertaken by AIP and its Member Societies.
