ADVANCE at the New Jersey Institute of Technology http://advance.njit.edu/
Integrating new location-aware computer networks with old-fashioned human networks, researchers at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) have developed an innovative solution to the problem of isolation that faces women in the academic science and engineering workforce. The project, “NJIT Advance,” is funded by a three-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The most serious problem facing women in science and engineering, at NJIT and across the country, is isolation. Integrating new virtual networks with traditional face-to-face networks, NJIT ADVANCE uses a variety of strategies to address this issue, linking women science and engineering researchers to each other, to male peers, and to female counterparts in industry and government.
