This month, we’re proud to shine the spotlight on our client, Clarkson University, for whom we serve as evaluator for its National Science Foundation (NSF) “ADVANCE: Organizational Change for Gender Equity in STEM Academic Professions” grant.
Upon receiving the grant in 2019, Clarkson University established STEM Leadership, Equity and Advancement of Faculty (STEM LEAF), a project designed to transform “the campus culture to further foster innovation through inclusion and belonging” with the following core goals:
- To significantly reduce implicit or unintentional bias associated with gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, and country of origin,
- To support inclusive leadership development of current and future University Leadership and professional development of STEM women faculty, and
- To promote the sustainability of these systemic efforts through university-wide structural changes.
This important work is highlighted as the NSF celebrates the 20th anniversary of ADVANCE with a series of panels and seminars throughout the month of March.
Do you have an ADVANCE project you need to evaluate? Or perhaps one you’d like to develop? We’d love to speak with you! Feel free to schedule a consult here.
