Increasing the Participation of Women with Disabilities in Academic STEM Careers (2021)
Proceedings of an AccessADVANCE Capacity Building Institute
The AccessADVANCE project held its inaugural capacity building institute (CBI) on May 25th and 27th, 2021. At the event, AccessADVANCE staff and participants shared challenges and solutions regarding the recruitment and participation of women with disabilities in ADVANCE activities and academic science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. In addition, they identified specific ways that stakeholders can work together to increase the participation and advancement of women with disabilities in academic STEM careers, with a focus on systemic change.
AccessADVANCE works to increase the participation and advancement of women with disabilities in academic STEM careers. AccessADVANCE is increasing knowledge and understanding of the issues related to this often marginalized group, in order to identify effective interventions with the potential to systematically address issues impacting the career advancement and success of women faculty with disabilities.
Presentation slides used during the event are available online in an accessible format.
