The Department of Physics and Astronomy public repudiation of Strumia’s talk

Last week, Alessandro Strumia gave a talk at CERN that caused an outrage among academics in physics, as he presented destructive and scientifically incorrect notions about women in the field. You can read about it, as well as his subsequent suspension, here.

The department has written a letter repudiating the notions Strumia presented. This is a very important step on the part of the department to show that it is committed to diversity and inclusion.
