Leading Through Diversity: Partnership for
Faculty Equity and Diversity



NSF Partnerships for Adaptation, Implementation, and Dissemination Awards (PAID)

This program is made possible through a National Science Foundation Grant (SBE- 0620123), and is part of the NSF ADVANCE program whose goal is to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers, thereby contributing to the development of a more diverse science and engineering workforce.

The Leading Through Diversity Partnership for Faculty Equity and Diversity is funded by an NSF Partnership for Adaptation, Implementation, and Dissemination Award (PAID) which supports the analysis, adaptation, dissemination and use of existing innovative materials and practices that have been demonstrated to be effective in increasing representation and participation of women in academic science and engineering careers.

As part of this grant, the five participating southern California campuses (UCI, UCLA, UCR, UCSB and UCSD) are developing and hosting an ongoing series of workshops, retreats and seminars targeting senior academic administrators and department chairs to enable dissemination of lessons learned and best practices from the UCI ADVANCE program, as well as from other nationally recognized ADVANCE programs, that have enabled increases in hiring of women and underrepresented minorities, particularly in STEM fields.

These programs will also focus on strategies to retain and advance women and minority faculty, in addition to recruitment.
