IGenSpectrum is a student group at UC Berkeley dedicated to improving the visibility and professional preparation of LGBT physicists. Founded in 2014, IGenSpectrum has already hosted a visiting colloquium speaker in a discussion of the challenges facing LGBT scientists; a summer research supplement program for undergraduates; and many social events.

At the UC Berkeley physics department, the graduate students are active in pushing for a more diverse and inclusive department climate. The three largest groups, IGenSpectrum, SWPS, and Compass, are increasing our coordination in our mentoring programs, social events, and policy recommendations.
