We are pleased to announce the AAAS SEA Change Institutional Workshop taking place on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C. The workshop will be held from 8 am – 5 pm and will include breakfast, lunch, and refreshments.
What: This workshop will:
provide an overview of the AAAS SEA Change self-assessment process, including lessons learned from the pilot institutions;
provide details about suggested timelines, who to include on a self-assessment team, what to include in an application, and how to develop a meaningful action plan;
provide time for institutional teams to explore tools for bridging self-assessment and responsive actions, and to comment on example action plans;
introduce participants to individuals involved with AAAS SEA Change as well as our international partners from Athena SWAN and the Race Equality Charter in the UK and Dimensions in Canada.
Who: We recommend that each institution send a team of three participants, including a high-level administrator (such as a dean or provost), a member of the faculty, and an individual familiar with institutional data and analysis.
