Female Center Directors' Convening (Archive)

“It’s time for gender parity in leadership. Let’s make it happen together.”

Gloria Feldt

ASU is home to over 100 centers specializing in distinct disciplines and initiatives, 28 of which are led by a female director. Twice a year, the Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology (CGEST) and Center for Biodiversity Outcomes gather ASU female-led centers to share best practices and network. Through this gathering, a community of scholars has emerged who share a common goal of advancing gender equity and are positioned to amplify the discourse by working collaboratively on a host of initiatives.

This October, we were honored to have Gloria Feldt, Co-Founder of Take the Lead, as our special guest. The goals of this event were to: facilitate dialogues across disciplines and borders; to strengthen community partnerships; and to better leverage practical, gender-equity work beyond academe.
