About

2017 ADVANCE/GSE Program Workshop
This is the 15th annual meeting for the National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE Program which strives to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse scientific workforce. Each year, ADVANCE Grant PIs and their team members gather to discuss, present, network and leverage knowledge.

For the third time, leaders of both the NSF ADVANCE and the Research on Gender in Science and Engineering (GSE) communities will meet together. The 2017 Broadening Participation workshop will discus discuss driving systemic change to foster gender equity in the academy.

About the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program
The goal of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) ADVANCE program is to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce. Since 2001, the NSF has invested over $130M to support ADVANCE projects at more than one-hundred institutions of higher education and STEM-related not-for-profit organizations in forty-one states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, including twenty-four EPSCoR jurisdictions.

About the National Science Foundation Research on Gender in Science and Engineering Program
The Research on Gender in Science and Engineering (GSE) program supports efforts to understand and address gender-based differences in STEM education and workforce participation through research, the diffusion of research-based innovations, and extension services in education that will lead to a larger and more diverse domestic science and engineering workforce. Typical projects will contribute to the knowledge base addressing gender-related differences in learning and in the educational experiences that affect student interest, performance, and choice of careers; how pedagogical approaches and teaching styles, curriculum, student services, and institutional culture contribute to causing or closing gender gaps that persist in certain fields. Projects will communicate and apply findings, evaluation results, and proven good practices and products to a wider community.

The Research on Gender in Science and Engineering program has been funding these objectives since 1993, under the prior names "Program for Women and Girls" (PWG), "Program for Gender Equity in Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology" (PGE) and "Gender Diversity in STEM Education" (GDSE). The program continues to seek to broaden the participation of girls and women in all fields of STEM education, but also considers gender more broadly to include research and diffusion activities focused on men and boys who are underrepresented in STEM fields.
