Equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI)

Perimeter is a unique institution, with a culture characterized by intellectual fearlessness and excellence. Yet we can do better.

Significant imbalances persist in physics. We’re here to make breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe – and breakthroughs are made by thinking in new ways. We can’t afford to leave any great thinkers, or any great ideas, behind.

Scroll down to learn more about our efforts to make Perimeter an institute where everyone can thrive and find a sense of belonging.

The Inclusive Perimeter Platform

Perimeter Institute aims to be a better place for all through the grassroots, volunteer-led Inclusive PI Platform. Working groups of students, postdocs, faculty, and staff address issues ranging from respect in codes of conduct to empowering young researchers, mental health, and diversity in physics.

The whole Perimeter community is encouraged to join. If you’re a PI resident interested in learning more, please contact [email protected].
