Dec 10, 2020 - Amber Roepe selected for APS Division of Particles and Fields Ethics Advisory Committee



This past summer, the American Physical Society’s (APS) Division of Particles and Fields (DPF) formed the Ethics Advisory Committee (EAC). The main goal of the EAC is to propose and oversee the development and implementation of ethics policies for the DPF. They will also participate in training on anti-harassment and anti-racist practices, collect and develop educational materials to support physicists at educational institutions and governmental and industrial research laboratories, and enforce the DPF community guidelines as necessary. Based on her success on many diversity and inclusion initiatives in our department, including organizing the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics in January 2020, being a founding member of our Community and Inclusion Committee, and her work in the DPF Snowmass Process, the DPF Executive Committee and the DPF Ethics Task Force selected Amber Roepe to serve on this important committee. On Nov. 20, 2020, Amber was announced as the sole graduate student member of the APS DPF EAC in the November issue of the DPF newsletter. We are very proud of her accomplishment and we know she will do an excellent job serving on this committee!
