This semester our SWiP Chats will be conducted via Zoom. They are tentatively planned on a rotating Monday morning – Wednesday afternoon schedule every other week. Our next SWiP Chat will be on Wednesday Sept. 30th at 4:30 PM and will include discussions about how COVID-19 has impacted women in academia. Information about how to connect will be sent to those on our email list. If you’d like to be added to the list, let us know!
We now also have a Slack workspace! If you would like to join, let us know.
We hope you all have a safe and healthy semester!
Welcome prospective graduate students to the Ohio State University! The Society for Women in Physics (SWiP) will be hosting a short information session via Zoom on Monday 3/23 at 4:30-5:00 pm EST. Join us to learn more about SWiP and get your questions answered!
On Friday, April 29, 2016, SWiP will be hosting a luncheon with physics professors from the department Jim Beatty and Amy Connolly. Both are married to a fellow academic (in physics and outside of physics) at Ohio State. They’ll discuss how they handled the job market in the search of two coinciding academic jobs (a common scenario in the so-called “two-body problem”). Please RSVP by Wednesday, April 27th if you would like to receive lunch! If you miss the deadline, feel free to bring a lunch and attend the discussion. We hope to see you there!
SWiP will start holding weekly, casual meetups to foster community and discuss plans more efficiently – we’re calling them SWiP Chip Chats (for the snack we have in abundance right now). Currently, we’re having them on Thursdays at 4 pm in 1136 PRB. Each month, one of the time spots will be converted to a formal SWiP general meeting.
Hope you can stop by!
(Update: This event was previously mis-labeled as being on a Monday so please be sure to update your calendar to the actual day, Tuesday, Nov. 10. Thanks!)
