Inclusive Connective Corridor: Social Networks and the ADVANCEment of Women STEM Faculty

Today, Chancellor Cantor officially announced our new NSF award “Inclusive Connective Corridor: Social Networks and the ADVANCEment of Women STEM Faculty“. I will be serving as a scientific advisor on the project and will support the team to design a social network analysis. The goal is to understand if and how human capital building activities of the grant will result in sustainable social capital.

Here is an excerpt from Chancellor Cantor’s email announcement:

Unleash the Power of Inclusive Talent

Changing the face of the next generation of faculty in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is the aim of a new, multi-disciplinary project at SU titled The Inclusive Connective Corridor. Esteemed faculty leaders from the sciences, engineering, the iSchool, and Whitman School are leading the charge in forging expansive social networks crossing disciplines, sectors, and genders to support the recruitment, retention, and advancement of women in these fields of intense national interest, but which women remain overwhelmingly underrepresented nationwide. It also reflects SU’s proud legacy of leadership in building inclusive environments for creative work.
