In the Nature article, A Step Towards Transparency, Jan Bogg describes some of the barriers to women’s advancement in science:  transparency in process and in status (statistics of women in senior positions).  To quote Bogg and her work for Breaking Barriers in the Workplace, “women, especially those at junior and mid-level grades, believe they do not experience sufficient transparency of information, policy and practice.”

ADVANCE at Brown, in collaboration with University administration, has begun addressing process transparency by making departmental standards, criteria, and procedures for promotion and tenure available to faculty online.  We post these documents on our wiki (along with additional resources) in order to provide transparency and equitable access to policies and procedures.
