The Site Visits: Assessing and Improving the Climate for Women in Physics workshop of the Third IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics covered the strategies and experiences of the American Physical Society and the UK Institute of Physics in running site visit programs. A site visit typically consists of on-site interviews conducted by a small team of volunteers with a range of stakeholders, followed by feedback to the management committee. Presented herein are the recommendations resulting from the findings of the workshop participants for the IUPAP Working Group on Women in Physics and individual country women in physics groups for establishing site visit programs. Workshop participants discussed the similarities and differences between the UK and the USA experience and concluded that site visit programs are quite useful but must be adapted to the local academic structure.
