Prof. Elena Long
Our very own Professor Elena Long has been named one of Business Equality's '40 LGBT Leaders Under 40' for 2019, which identifies young LGBTQ leaders across the country who are demonstrating exceptional leadership and making major contributions in government, corporate, academia, non-profit, or small business.


Prof. Long was recognized for her scientific contribution on advancing nuclear physics through polarized targets, for founding the organization LGBT+ Physicists, and working with the American Physical Society to publish a first-of-its-kind LGBT Climate in Physics report that highlights the challenges facing  sexual and gender minority physicists.

Congratulations, Elena!
