This brochure is a description of the LEADER program and the people who are working to make it possible. A list of events is provided on the second page.
The LEADER Consortium sponsors along with the Member Institution a series of programs and events. While each event has a unique topic and goal, the overall intent is to promote and support institutional changes through awareness and knowledge.
The LEADER Consortium provides dual career support to spouses or partners of new STEM faculty hired by the consortium institutions through two programs: Resume-Sharing and Neighboring Institutions.
The research component of the LEADER Consortium project focuses on improving the climate for STEM women at the partner institutions, applying models and methods from social science at levels ranging from the individual to the department, to the college, and to the institution.
The Dayton region is a wonderful place to live as it provides all the amenities of a big city, but without the high cost or traffic. In addition to a wide variety of housing, school, and shopping choices, there is much to see and do.
The LEADER Consortium provides various funding programs that support STEM women faculty. The Annual Mini-Grant Program is a consortium-level program that is open to all STEM faculty and provides grant awards of up to $5,000. Other funding programs are institutional-level and are open only to STEM faculty at the granting institution.
This presentation from the 2013 PI meeting describes the impact of a collaborative ADVANCE program including universities and government laboratories in the Dayton area.
Equity advisors are senior STEM faculty members who have been trained to serve as a resource for STEM faculty, working closely with her or his dean to achieve an equitable environment for all STEM faculty at their respective colleges and/or institutions.
