Activating networks. Removing barriers. Empowering success. Changing culture.

ADVANCE is a UW program that takes strategic action to eliminate underrepresentation of women faculty in STEM at the UW and beyond. We partner with individual faculty, department chairs, UW leadership of all gender identities and the broader STEM community to remove roadblocks so that women faculty can equitably join, succeed, and lead in the STEM fields.
