A statement from the particle physics community about *that* talk at CERN earlier this week. Look at the list of signatories. Restores faith in a crazy world.
PARTICLES FOR JUSTICE IS LIVE! I am proud to be a co-author on this statement from high energy physicists
After a solid week of work with some really amazing colleagues, I am very proud to announce a community response to the appalling talk by Strumia. I am proud to have my name here as an author.
If you’re a biologist and claim to be for “diversity” and “equity” now is your time to shine: tell the public that the science doesn’t back transphobia! See as a sample letter writing model.
The particle physics community has got together and written an incredibly powerful statement, demolishing, point-by-point Strumia's now-notorious presentation at CERN and all that it stood for - it's a must read.
A statement from a number of high-energy physicists on the recent talk by Strumia on women and science. Thanks to everyone who helped shape it. (Replaced an earlier tweet, for clarity.) #particlesforjustice
Several of us felt the need to prepare a rebuttal to the offensive & unsound talk at CERN last week and reaffirm our values. I’m very happy that over 200 physicists have already signed on.
If you are in physics or an adjacent field, I encourage you to sign on to this statement rejecting the statements Alessandro Strumia made at CERN last week.
I wasn't sure a letter expressing solely ideological objections to Strumia's talk would be helpful. So kudos to the authors for responding with this well-argued response.
A brilliant community statement on a recent talk at CERN: #ParticlesForJustice #DiversityInSTEM
After David Gross, another Nobel laureate, Frank Wilczek, joined our signatories! We are shouting loud and clear against the sexist talk given at CERN! Join thousands of people and raise your voice! (All academics are welcome) #ParticlesforJustice
I am proud to have signed this statement, which is fundamentally about treating each of our colleagues as humans first, about sound science, and about ethical behavior. SO MANY THANKS to ++
I'm so proud to be part of this statement: #WomeninSTEM and many others!
Strong statement from the HEP community on Strumia's disgraceful talk, denouncing it both morally and intellectually. Thank you to et al. for the invaluable work.
This is very good - well worth a read ⁦#equity #diversity #inclusion #science #gender #physics #data ⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ Particles for Justice
For another take on Strumia
Division of Particles and Fields (of American Physical Society) endorses our statement on the sexist talk given at CERN! #particlesforjustice
A statement from a number of high-energy physicists on the recent talk by Strumia on women and science. Thanks to Daniel Harlow for initiating this, and to everyone who helped shape it. #particlesforjustice
We ask simply that the community recognize the seriousness of this issue, and that they keep Strumia's unacceptable behavior in mind when considering their own course of action.
From feeling powerless (Sep 30) to #ParticlesForJustice! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Thanks to my co-authors +++
We have 2 Matt's among our authors and 27 (and counting) among our signatories. Surely these are not the only Matt's out there. Matt's of academia, unite! And sign our statement against a sexist talk given at CERN here: #particlesforjustice
Physicists speak out against Strumia and back it up WITH SCIENCE! from and many others
The particle physics community responds to #strumia #misogyny in their community 👏👏👏
Claims of Gender Bias in Physics
"Physics and science are part of the shared inheritance of all people, as much as art, music, and literature, and we should strive to ensure that everyone has a fair opportunity to become a scientist"
"...the humanity of any person, regardless of ascribed identities such as race, ethnicity, gender identity, religion, disability, gender presentation, or sexual identity is not up for debate."
A collective statement about Strumia's recent talk at CERN. It is excellent, because it reminds core ethical principles AND takes care to destroy the purported "scientific" argument behind Strumia's claims abt discrimination HT
Strong statement by high energy physicists debunking the recent talk by Alessandro Strumia at . HT
This triggered an outrage mob, who, apparently, was far more appalled by the evidence Strumia presented of little/no gender bias, than the personal attack. Their response can be found here
ALSO, "Physics and astronomy are home to many in-house experts on the sociology and philosophy of physics .... This moment reminds us to pay attention to their work." Take note, economists
