Georgia Tech ADVANCE Program

Advocate. Advise. Educate. Empower.

Supported by the Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion office, Georgia Tech’s ADVANCE Program builds and sustains an inter-college network of professors who are world-class researchers and role models to support the community and advancement of women and minorities in academia by:

  • Advocating for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Advising campus leadership on policy and structure.
  • Increasing awareness and reducing the impact of implicit bias.
  • Making data-driven recommendations for faculty retention, advancement, and satisfaction.

Our goal is to develop systemic and institutional approaches that increase the representation, full participation, and advancement of women and minorities in academic STEM careers—thus contributing to a more diverse workforce, locally and nationally.
