About the Convening

The 2024 ADVANCE Equity in STEM Community Convening (ADVANCE EiSCC) brings together a variety of change makers from higher education, professional societies, industry, government, and non-profits in an engaged exchange of knowledge, resources, and support to drive systemic change in STEM with a focus on intersectional gender equity for STEM faculty.

Attendees have an opportunity to share new research findings and exchange resources; brainstorm strategies; collaborate in novel ways; learn about avenues for funding; and demonstrate effective programs and interventions for greater collective impact.

Regardless of whether you have an NSF ADVANCE grant or not, if you are interested in driving systemic change in STEM, the ADVANCE EiSCC is for you!
