The theme of the 2021 PER conference was "Making Physics More Inclusive and Eliminating Exclusionary Practices in Physics." This conference was an invitation for the PER community to explore emergent themes in PER as a scholarly endeavor and as a research community. In addition to the papers addressing this year’s theme, the remainder of the papers represent the diversity of current research within PER and help this volume fulfill its purpose of providing an annual snapshot of the field.

Readership: Physics education researchers (faculty, post-doctoral students, and graduate/undergraduate students); researchers in fields close to Physics Education, such as cognitive science, chemistry education, biology education; physics faculty at undergraduate and graduate levels; high school physics teachers.

The essential work of cultivating inclusive environments in organizations, communities, and society too often falls to those who are themselves members of marginalized and underrepresented groups. This can be especially true in masculinized and male-dominated professions, where the conditions of work and productivity and the valuation of knowledge and skills has historically been defined by those with a combination of dominant social identities, such as being white, being male, being heterosexual, and being cisgender. A good example of such a profession is that of physics and physics education. More recently, there have been calls to move the work of inclusion from the margins of such environments more to the center. Such a movement could prove important in the process of recreating and positioning the work of inclusion as the obligation of everyone, rather than the responsibility of the marginalized and underrepresented. The purpose of this plenary paper is to discuss how bystander intervention and ally development frameworks can be utilized in physics education to promote and sustain greater inclusion for marginalized and underrepresented groups by framing inclusion as the obligation and responsibility of everyone.
