Welcome!  Our goal with this blog is to share the lessons we’ve learned managing our ADVANCE program here at Brown University.  Funded by a 5-year grant from the National Science Foundation, the ADVANCE Program at Brown University seeks to increase the retention and advancement of women faculty in science and engineering by making available those mechanisms that promote career success for all faculty scientists—mechanisms including mentoring, grant-seeking support, and tools for becoming leaders in academic and scientific communities.  We also strive to transform the institution by utilizing the social science literature on gender equity in resources provided to department chairs and administrators in order to ensure the retention and advancement of women and minority scientists.  ADVANCE at Brown awards grants for research and professional development, sponsors seminars and public lectures, provides grant librarian support, as well as networking opportunities that seek to foster faculty success.

We are writing this blog to promote awareness, share resources, and identify a space where others can comment and discuss these issues.
