Current initiatives

Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee is currently chaired by Dr Mark Hughes, from the physics department at the University of Manchester, and we have a Diversity Champion on Council who is currently Dr June McCombie, from the chemistry department at the University of Nottingham. Our Head of Diversity, Jenni Dyer, and our Diversity co-ordinator, Angela Townsend, manage and run the diversity programme and projects.

Our current project priorities include Project Juno and the extension of Juno to include Juno Excellence and a new principle on harassment and bullying, establishing our LGBT+ network and programme of activities and building on our report Building Momentum on inclusive learning in undergraduate physics.

Please contact us at diversity@iop.org if you wish to discuss any aspect of diversity within the physics community or at the IOP.
