    In this session, ADVANCE* project team members will present the goals and activities of a newly awarded ADVANCE Adaptation grant with the goal of increasing the representation and advancement of women and underrepresented minorities at all levels in academic science. We will engage in discussions regarding how the goals align with faculty DEI and intersectionality at the department and university level.

    *ADVANCE is an NSF-funded grant that funds both research and activity-based projects at institutions of higher education and STEM related not-for-profits.
