About Us

Yale Women in Physics is an undergraduate organization that seeks to promote gender equality in STEM, especially in the physical sciences. We host national conferences, as well as lunches, panels, talks and social events for the physics community at Yale. 

The group was founded by Ariel Ekblaw ’14 and Ellen Klein ‘13 in 2011 to organize the 2012 edition of the American Physical Society Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (APS CUWiP) at Yale. Ever since then, the group has grown and has become a support system for young women who want to pursue physics at Yale. We also hosted APS CUWiP in 2015. Among our activities, we have our famous Annual Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Study Break

Membership is open to any undergrad at Yale, regardless of major or gender. So e-mail our board to be added to our panlist, and join us to receive more news about exciting things happening in physics at Yale and events that we are hosting!
