Administrative Training Workshops

The Training Workshop series heightens administrators’ and key decision makers’ knowledge and understanding of workforce inclusion and gender issues. Training workshops take place annually:

Department Head Training

These annual workshops focus on recruitment, hiring, RPT (late spring), and annual performance reviews (early fall). The workshops help identify challenges to recruitment, bias in hiring and review practices and the importance of transparency. They assist heads in passing these messages on to their faculties as they supervise or conduct hiring, promotion, tenure and review processes that will become more STEM women-friendly.
