Quantum Information Science and Technology Initiatives Panel
Nationally-driven research initiatives in quantum information science and technology have grown as quickly as the fields themselves in recent years. This panel will explore the state of the research, the initiatives, and the potential international competitiveness, and cooperation that comes with them.

Beyond Awareness: What Actions Can Be Taken to Improve Diversity in STEM?
In the physical sciences, women and minorities have seen slower improvements in representation compared to fields such as medicine and law. Information on how to improve this representation in STEM is also difficult to find. This workshop brings together leaders of professional organizations and subject matter experts to discuss policies and actions that can improve gender, racial, LGBTQI and disability diversity within the physics, engineering and optics communities.
