Advocates & Allies Workshop

Join us for an interactive 90-minute long workshop that explores the factors that underlie the underrepresentation of women faculty in the STEM academic workplace and the arguments for changes needed in the academy in order for women to fully participate.

Throughout the session, you will be in active discussion which will culminate in highlighting actions and ideas focused on what you can do to get started.
