Physics : Diversity and Anti-Racism in Physics

This guide provides a starting point for research in Physics and Astronomy and related disciplines

Getting Started

This list of resources and organizations is intended to support the College of Science's work to support equity, inclusion, diversity, and justice in our communities and practices.

The list is not comprehensive, and the resources inevitably reflect the biases of the various creators. They are intended to provide a starting point to explore the wide variety of resources within the Physics and STEM communities. This page will be continuously updated and feedback is welcome! If you're looking for more resources or for something different, please reach out to Jodi Bolognese at

For more anti-racism resources in STEM fields, please check out our Diversity and Anti-Racism in STEM page.

For more anti-racism resources and ways to get involved at Northeastern and beyond, please check out our Anti-Racism guide.


Take Action

Reading, listening, and supporting the STEM-related organizations and initiatives included on this page are a great start.

Want to do more? Check out this page for other ways you can fight racism, including voting, volunteering, keeping up with the conversation, attending campus events, plus training and organizations beyond STEM that you can get involved with.
