Advocates

Decorative graphic

Advocates are senior faculty and administrative men who have a record of supporting women staff and faculty. Advocates lead facilitated conversations with other men to expose them to ways of better identifying and behaving as Allies in gender equity. These groups share evidence-based knowledge, skills and strategies to effect positive personal, departmental and institutional change.

Advocates are committed to increasing their understanding of gender bias and its impact on the academic careers of women. They work with the program Advocate Coordinator Rudy Buchheit, professor and associate dean in the College of Engineering, to develop facilitation materials for male faculty who are interested in becoming Allies. Once vetted, an Advocate is expected to offer facilitations regularly and follow up with informal meetings to discuss case studies.

Advocates also work with the Advocates & Allies Advisory Council (AAAC) composed of women staff and faculty. The AAAC’s role is to select and advise Advocates, provide feedback to the them, and help them understand and remain in touch with the experience of women and underrepresented minorities in our academic climate.

Emeritus Advocates

Advocates with an emeritus status have learned evidence-based knowledge, skills and strategies to effect positive personal, departmental and institutional change that supports equity for women faculty and staff, but are unable to meet the commitments associated with being an active advocate due to other administrative or professional responsibilities.
