Feminism has long struggled with questions of commonality and difference, with scholars debating whether shared power and knowledge comes from common experiences, or whether our differences strengthen our capacity for change through our diversity. Gilmer and Borman broach that same subject in this chapter, encouraging us to consider strength as emanating from both sources: common concerns about the dearth of women in STEM at their institutions and yet clear differences in the campuses’ resources, experience, and institutional readiness to embrace social change.

We conducted this study in the third year of the grant. With our data as a backdrop, to fulfill our project objectives we modified and adapted successful programs developed in the context of other ADVANCEInstitutional Transformation projects, specifically: – recruiting women into the academic faculty, – mentoring and networking of academic women faculty, and – transforming careers of academic women via leadership workshops. The AAFAWCE hosted many events related to these activities, such as Train-thetrainer recruitment workshop, the mentoring workshop, and two COACh workshops that faculty from all five universities attended.
