Advancing and Empowering Scholars Conference

    In the spring of 2008, the Office of Faculty Development & Diversity (FD&D) hosted an invitation-only working conference at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge for stakeholders to review current research pertaining to faculty diversity issues and utilizing these research findings in the development of specific tools and resources for institutions.

    • Providing dependent care and work/life resources.
    • Determining creative solutions for dual career couples.
    • Identifying benchmarks for success.
