Thomas and Martha Myers Yeager Endowed Chair in the Liberal Arts, Johnson will cover surprising patterns about the institutions where women of color study physics, and will share what two inclusive institutions she has studied are doing well, including St. Mary’s College of Maryland, whose own physics department has been successful at supporting women faculty.    Johnson will also talk about the findings of her undergraduate researchers, women physics majors, who are carrying out ground-breaking work to help make physics more inclusive: identifying the actions physics professors can take to better support physics students who are raising children, and exploring the nature of student-student interactions in physics.   Johnson was named the Yeager Endowed Chair in the Liberal Arts in August 2018.
