Abstract:

In this presentation Dr Fehr will discuss the results of ISU ADVANCE, a  $3.3 million National Science Foundation supported research project designed to test strategies for improving the recruitment, retention, and advancement   of women and members of underrepresented minority groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  In particular, this talk will address barriers to, and strategies for, improving the work climate in scientific communities.  These improvements benefit both men and women scientists and support research excellence.
