121st ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition
Research and recommendations have shown that advancements within a minority group benefit greatly from majority group involvement. With this philosophy in mind, the Women in Engineering Division (WIED) has facilitated and sponsored the development of a website (http://wied.asee.org/AdvTips.html) with the content largely driven by partnership with NSF ADVANCE [Institution]. This panel brings together researchers, advocates, and facilitators at various levels of academia to discuss the development and future of the Advocacy Tips Initiative. This paper augments the panel by providing a) a brief review of prior research into disparities in STEM faculty, b) successful examples that facilitate dialogues and improve workplace climates, c) information for an individual or administrative advocate, and d) strategies to gain awareness and wider adaptation of Advocacy Tips.
