  • Both workshops include a unit on cognitive shortcuts (Implicit bias)Workshops
  • Core group of senior faculty from Engineering and Arts and Sciences formed a reading group to study cognitive shortcuts and women’s underrepresentation in STEM faculty.
  • Core faculty group created and present workshops
  • Workshops are targeted toward senior faculty (those most likely to chair search committees or serve as formal mentors)
  • To date, over half of senior faculty in the participating departments have attended a workshop
  • Evolution & OutreachReduced faculty hiring starting in 2011 few searches and limited turnover of formal mentors. We had to adapt to stay relevant and not lose ground:

  • UD Chairs’ Caucus
  • Delaware County Community College Recruitment Workshop
  • Delaware State University
  • Percent Women Faculty (t/tt)EngineeringNatural SciencesSustainability: Our Story
  • Currently supported by the President’s Diversity Initiative (one-year grant)
  • Expanding to the Colleges of Health Sciences and Earth, Ocean, and Environment
  • Expanding to cover race and ethnicity
  • New faculty reading group
  • Original core group rotated over time, advancing in their own careers, taking the ADVANCE message with them
  • Continue to apply for NSF funding
  • Sustainability: Best Practices
  • Need support and involvement from deans (at least)
  • Need strong faculty involvement – reading group comprised of senior, respected faculty has been essential for us
  • Workshops should promote faculty interaction, discussion
  • Dedicated staffing allows program to keep going
  • Resources incentivize faculty participation
  • Make workshops and materials useful to faculty
