Women in Physics

The Women’s Physics Network (WPN) was set up in 2014 by PhD students, undergraduate students and academic staff at Southampton.

The network aims to bring together women and gender-minority members of Physics and Astronomy to promote their career development and to champion gender equality and diversity within the school.

The WPN hold seminars by leading researchers, workshops for both staff and students, and raise awareness of the importance of equality, as well as hosting a variety of social events. In 2017 the WPN was awarded the University’s Vice-Chancellor’s Award for ED&I.
