Best Practice Workshops

LEAF sponsors Best Practices Workshops, bringing in leaders in various academic fields, to share insights and facilitate workshops. The purpose is to engage the community of faculty and administration in the top-down process of change.

Seakers include previous ADVANCE program directors and administrators, leaders in industry and local organizations (e.g., Procter and Gamble, GE) that promote equity and diversity in their organizations, and scholars specializing in broadening participation of underrepresented groups in the STEM disciplines.
