The goal of the NSF ADVANCE Program is to increase the participation of women in the academic science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and social, behavioral and economic (SBE) science careers.
WELI’s objectives are to:
Increase the number of women in academic leadership positions.
Accelerate and enhance the success of women in academic leadership positions.
Establish and maintain a support network for women engineering faculty leaders.
This mailing list is for the use of the ADVANCE PIs, Directors, and Program Developers. It will enable us to share best practices, helpful web sites and programs, discuss common goals, etc. You can subscribe here.
The methods and procedures outlined in these toolkits will help you to meet the NSF reporting requirements and conduct effective program evaluations. Toolkits are available here.
The ADVANCE Implementation Mentors Network connects change leaders at ADVANCE grantee institutions to increase their efficiency and effectiveness. advanceaimnetwork.org
