About GWIP


GWIP aims to foster community among women-identified physics graduate students at MIT and provide advice on career development and navigating daily life as a woman in physics. We share casual meals every two weeks during the semester in the Margaret Wong Room for Women in Physics (6C-247). Additionally, our faculty advisor, Professor Anna Frebel, leads a series of career development workshops. We also run a mentoring program for MIT undergraduate women in physics (UWIP) and have regular dinner mixers with UWIP. Other outreach activities include volunteering at Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP), MIT Science on Saturday, and Splash!


Each semester, GWIP hosts a speaker in the MIT David and Edith Harris Physics Colloquium Series. There is also a GWIP travel grant to cover expenses to send students to conferences each year. We hold joint dinners annually with the Harvard Graduate Women in Physics. Additionally, we organize several social outings a year, including apple picking, beach trips, movies, and more!


All members of GWIP contribute to planning and organizing our events. Additional positions are listed below.
