A new book, with NSF-funded authors, is now available. The book, titled Leading Change in Gender and Diversity in Higher Education from Margins to Mainstream, has many chapters relating to the intersection of STEM, higher education, and diversity. Of particular interest to ATE Grantees may be the chapter "Improving gender diversity in STEM through an inclusive professional framework."
Each of the book's four sections topics unpack and speak to gender and diversity, equity, inclusion and access, social justice, and leadership and sustainability in higher education institutions (HEIs). Incorporating innovative processes and methods, the researchers address how the experiences of groups who have been subordinated and marginalized can be heard, proposing a re-imagination of empowerment and leadership within higher education and best practices for the benefit of ongoing higher education development.
This book is ideal reading for higher education leaders, students on higher education courses, leadership courses, gender in education, as well as researchers, practitioners, for topics of gender and diversity, equity, inclusion and access, social justice, leadership and sustainability.
Leading Change in Gender and Diversity in Higher Education from Margins to Mainstream is funded by NSF INCLUDES—a comprehensive, national initiative to enhance U.S. leadership in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) discovery and innovation, focused on NSF's commitment to ensuring accessibility and inclusivity in STEM fields. It is available via Routledge.
