Accelerating Change for Women of Color Faculty in STEM: Policy, Action, and Collaboration

Women of color have made steady inroads into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines. To address this under-representation, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) worked with an advisory committee of experts to hold a convening exploring promising program and policy changes for increasing the representation of women of color in STEM faculty positions. This webpage contains resources and background information relevant to the convening that may be helpful to invited participants and speakers.View External Website
