Women in Science


The Department of Physics is working to assess, address and challenge the inequities women face in their academic careers as part of the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences (NMS) Women in Science Initiative

As part of NMS, we previously held a faculty-level Athena SWAN Bronze Award, and in January 2019 the Department was awarded, by the Institute of Physics, Juno Champion Status

Our goal is to create a fair and inclusive environment for all staff and students, so that everyone has available to them the support and opportunities they need to achieve their full potential. Work towards this goal is supported by the Departmental Equality & Diversity Committee.

If you have any comments, suggestions, questions or concerns relating to diversity and inclusion in the Department of Physics, please contact the Chair of the Department Equality & Diversity Committee Dr Amelle Zair. To find out more about diversity and inclusion at King’s see here (


KCL Women in Physics

The KCL Womxn in Physics Society was founded in 2015, by a second year undergraduate who wanted to address the issue of under-representation of women and non binary people in the physics department at King's College London. Since then, it has become an official KCLSU ratified student society, hosted the first Women in Physics London Conference, and run workshops to build a sense of community in the department. 

The society aims to act as a safe space for all minorities in the field of physics, promoting an inclusive and supportive environment through a range of social, educational and academic events. 

Support for Parents and Carers

NMS is committed to supporting the members of our community who have children or act, formally or informally, as carers. Information can be found here.
