dc.description.abstractIn this talk, I’ll discuss climatic issues faced by LGBT people in Physics, informed by findings of the recent American Physical Society report on the status of LGBT people in Physics. This report was prepared for the APS by an ad hoc committee of physicists, spanning a range of institutions types and career stages, and included information from focus groups held at APS meetings, the first ever climate survey of LGBT people in physics, and a set of in-depth interviews with individuals who self-identify as LGBT. Driven by this evidence, I’ll discuss implications for pedagogy, as well as collective and individual actions the community can take to alleviate the issues identified.en_US
