Retention of a talented faculty workforce is not just a matter of good start-up packages and...
“The WeLEAD project goals for improving the progression and retention of women members in the STEM disciplines focus on the Associate Professors level. Our data indicate that retention of Associate Professor is a significant contributor to the lack of senior women at the university and in administrative positions.” This poster was presented by Idaho State University at the 2008 ADVANCE PI Meeting.
The decreasing representation of women at increasing levels of rank in academia is well documented; women are particularly underrepresented in the STEM disciplines at all ranks. Implicit associations, which are unconscious associations that occur automatically and quickly due to internalized stereotypes, may help explain women’s underrepresentation in certain disciplines and at higher ranks in the academic hierarchy.
The UNC Charlotte ADVANCE team presented two posters at the November 2010 ADVANCE Primary Investigators' Meeting.

"Appreciative Inquiry is an approach to institutional change with the intent of building on what organizations are already doing well, rather than trying to pinpoint problem areas and fix what is not working." This presentation discusses this approach, strengths in recruiting and how they can improve, and strengths in career development and how they can improve. It was presented at the 2008 ADVANCE PI meeting.

Data from a local mid-sized New England University reveal that women account for only 20.4% of the STEM faculty. Men faculty are more densely clustered in higher ranks (e. g., 75.7% Full Professors) and far outnumber women in all ranks. Other data are presented and discussed to highlight changes across the years (e. g., gender balance in new hires and salaries), as well as needed changes to increase the representation of women faculty in STEM fields.
The most serious problem facing women in science and engineering is isolation. NJIT ADVANCE uses a variety of strategies to address this issue, linking women researchers to each other, to male peers, and to female counterparts in industry. By supporting interdisciplinary research synergy in this manner, we believe we can help expand women’s professional networks, improve information flow, stimulate social capital formation, and increase the number of women leaders.
The poster reports on qualitative interviews with STEM faculty at a large research university. The authors identify gendered pathways of career development, which they argue can contribute to the disengagement of female faculty and a disadvantaged career pathway.
