Original Air Date: September 11, 2019
From 2008 to 2017, women comprised less than 20% of faculty at the top U.S. engineering schools. In the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering, women now occupy half of the top faculty-leadership roles, including department chairs, associate deans, and executive committee members.
In this webinar, inspired by the May 2019 Chronicle of Education article “An Engineering School with Half of Its Leadership Female? How Did That Happen?” University of Michigan’s Alec Gallimore (Robert J. Vlasic Dean of Engineering) and Jennifer Linderman (Professor of Chemical Engineering and Director of the ADVANCE Program) will explore four key approaches used at Michigan Engineering to build the female leadership pool and offer practical insights for other leaders who seek similar success.
This interactive webinar encourages and equips men to serve as effective allies for gender equity in STEM settings. Facilitators Roger Green (North Dakota State University) and Robert Gordon (Auburn University) introduce the concept of Advocates and Allies and discuss factors that impact the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women. They review recent literature that helps explain why and how gender inequity occurs. Lastly, they introduce and develop concepts, vocabulary, actions, and practical skills to promote gender equity. This webinar is part of a larger series inspired by the TUEE Phase III project and report.
