Do I have to be a cisgendered female to join?
Nope! Our goal is to help cultivate a community within the NYU Department of Physics for those within the gender minority, not exclude those who also may be seeking help in making the most of their time here in the Physics Department. Feel free to sign up for our mailing list to learn about events and how you can get involved.
Help! Something happened, and I'm not sure who to talk to. Do I need to be a member of WiPhy to contact support?
Of course not, we're here to help anyone who might need it. We understand discrimination in academic environments is not limited to being gender-based, and even those who are generally within the majority can be subjected to harassment. If you or someone you know experiences any form of harassment on campus, please call public safety at (212) 998-2222, visit NYU's Safety and Security info page, or contact us if you need someone to talk to. Don't be afraid to speak up, we're here to listen.
When are meetings?
Meetings are typically held bi-monthly in NYU's Department of Physics at 726 Broadway. You must be affiliated with NYU Physics in order to gain access to the building.
Due to safety concerns brought on by COVID-19, all meeting for the remainder of the 2020-2021 Academic Year will be held remotely over zoom. Attendance of meetings requires an NYU account with zoom. Please sign up for the mailing list if you would like to receive information on how to attend the next meeting.
As active members of NYU's growing online presence, we care deeply about digital accessibility for people with a wide range of motor and cognitive abilities. More information about NYU's digital accessibility policy can be found here. If you see anything that may not be compliant with accessibility standards, feel free to let us know in through the contact form here, and we will try our best to fix the issue as soon as possible.
