Interactive Panel on Advocacy Tips: an Initiative to Provide Individuals the Tools to Advocate for Women and Unrepresented Minorities Research and recommendations have shown that advancements within a minority group benefit greatly from majority group involvement. With this philosophy in mind, the Women in Engineering Division (WIED) has facilitated and sponsored the development of a website (http://wied.asee.org/AdvTips.html) with the content largely driven by partnership with an NSF ADVANCE Institution. This panel will bring together researchers, advocates, and facilitators at various levels of academia to discuss the growth and future of the Advocacy Tips Initiative. Topics will include a) Past research which has revealed underlying reasons behind gender disparities in STEM faculty b) Examples of success: facilitating dialogue and improving workplace climates c) The power of the individual advocate d) The power of an administrative advocate e) Strategies to gain awareness and wider adaptation of Advocacy Tips A paper will be compiled to provide compelling motivations to adapt and implement the Advocacy Tips at individual institutions, a rich review of the published literature in this area, and discussions from the perspectives of each panelist on the development and impact of the Initiative. Concluding remarks will focus on the broader perspectives and practical wisdom gained thus far from the Advocacy Tips Initiative. Panel attendees will benefit by gaining familiarity with the topic along with practical advice on implementing the Advocacy Tips in their work climate. Future efforts will be discussed and enthusiasm/advice sought from attendees.
