Please join us during Women's History month for one or more of the events below which are in celebration of 20 years of NSF ADVANCE and 30 years of the NSF Division of Human Resource Development

This series includes some of the many outstanding faculty and administrators who have spent thousands of hours researching faculty gender equity, developing interventions based on the science, and implementing and evaluating systemic change strategies within their institutions over the last 20 years.  The scope of the ADVANCE work is impressive and we hope to have additional seminars in the future. 

If you would like to be connected to the NSF ADVANCE community of extraordinary people, you are invited to join the ADVANCE Resource Coordination Network (ARC Network) - you do not need to be a NSF grantee to join.
