From Science News, April 14, 2021: Black and Hispanic workers remain underrepresented while it varies widely by field for women. Fermilab’s Jessica Esquivel is interviewed in this story on the Pew Research report that shows ethnic and gender gaps in STEM professions.
The Fermilab PAC is one of the driving engines behind the laboratory’s scientific program. Composed of distinguished scientists in the international particle physics community, the committee advises the director on the lab’s experimental program by reviewing proposals for new experiments and giving the director advice in planning the laboratory’s slate of programs and projects.
The November Fermilab PAC meeting report is now available and is posted on the PAC webpage: http://pac.fnal.gov/
The Physics Advisory Committee has considered the future neutrino program (LBNF/DUNE and the Short-Baseline Neutrino Program), NOvA, MicroBooNE, MINOS+, US-CMS, the Scientific Computing Division status and vision, and the theory strategic plan.
