We studied an academic science work environment that has been conducive to the advancement of women faculty and students to identify elements that have facilitated high quality science and gender inclusion.
A study on how ADVANCE has increased the number of women in leadership positions at different institutions is reported in this presentation. Recommendations and future directions are included. This presentation was given at the 2006 PI Meeting.
This presentation reports the findings from a study that “describe[s] the emerging organizational transformation experience of 19 US universities, funded in the first two rounds of NSF’s ADVANCE IT program, that have aimed to increase the participation of female faculty in all Science and Engineering ranks and in leadership.” It was presented at the 2008 PI Meeting.
Faculty career stages have not been extensively studied in the literature on academic career development, and not much is known definitively about how faculty careers systematically unfold for female and male faculty.
Reported in this presentation is a study that answers questions about gender differences and work effort, satisfaction, productivity, compensation, and trends in different career stages. The main finding is that there are significant differences at each career stage for male and female faculty. This presentation was given at the 2008 ADVANCE PI Meeting.
This presentation covers the results of efforts made by CWRU's ADVANCE program to implement executive coaching. Coaches were assigned to selected department chairs, administrators, and female faculty, and surveys were used to evaluate the experiences of participants. The results show that everyone felt better prepared for their career after coaching, but that men had a higher baseline than women. This presentation was given at the 2006 PI Meeting.
