Community Round Table

The Columbia Physics Community Round Table (CRT) provides an open forum for discussions around issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. These talks place an emphasis on providing engaging open-ended conversations that are intended to build a stronger department culture. In the end, this program seeks to amplify marginalized voices by both creating spaces for them to be heard and by developing a community that is more receptive to diverse perspectives.
