SD-WISE (South Dakota Working in STEM for Equity)

Working together within our institutions and the Board of Regents, our goal is to implement significant policy change initiatives for establishing gender equity norms and, in consequence, increased recruitment, promotion and retention of female STEM faculty in the state of South Dakota. This project is the result of an ADVANCE grant through the National Science Foundation.
