Peter Sheldon Facilitates National Conversation on Gender Equity in Physics



The American Physical Society and the Committee for the Status of Women in Physics are sponsoring a volunteer committee of faculty who have been trained to facilitate conversations and assess physics departments across the country as to the gender inequities that exist. Peter Sheldon is part of this group, and for his first assignment travelled to the University of Houston to review the physics department there. He will continue to visit departments across the United States in 2010.
