Women ADVANCE Leadership is a workshop series to encourage and support mid-career women faculty (tenured and fixed-term) seeking to enhance their skills and advance to senior leadership, research, and teaching positions.

Participants join a multidisciplinary cohort of mid-career women faculty to attend a monthly Women ADVANCE Leadership Workshops. Each workshop will feature a respected and accomplished woman leader sharing her story, followed by an interactive, skills-building discussion. Participants are encouraged to form smaller peer groups to network, reflect and develop tools as they continue their learning experience. Additional professional development workshops will also be promoted by the Center for Faculty Excellence and TEAM ADVANCE.

Featured speakers represent a breadth of academic leadership roles, and many are renowned for their careers in STEM fields. Mid-career women faculty in STEM and related disciplines are highly encouraged to register; mid-career women faculty in non-STEM fields are also welcome.
