Learn from Your Peers

Celebrating the Power of the NCWIT Seed Fund: Past recipient(s) will share how the Seed Fund helped launch their initiatives, and you’ll hear tips on writing a strong proposal. We will also celebrate the 2019 Seed Fund recipients.

During this time, you will have an opportunity to learn from your peers about what they are doing at their institutions to accelerate and sustain change!

Bringing NCWIT to Your Institution

Building upon the last session, we will continue with a set of presentations and discussions. NCWIT researchers will present new resources that will help you diagnose your current progress towards systemic change and jumpstart your initiatives.

Exploring Intersections of Identity with Gender: In this interactive session, we will explore concrete strategies for faculty and administrators to navigate topics such as race, ethnicity, sexual-orientation, socioeconomic status, geographic region, disability-status, gender identity, indigeneity, etc. The session will include videos and discussion questions that you can take back to your institution!
