Multi-institutional transformations will be initiated by both developing women leaders among the faculty and also enabling women and men administrators to improve sociocultural environments and remove institutional obstacles to advancement for diverse faculty. Three regional inter-institutional peer mentoring networks will be formed for university administrators and mid-career women STEM faculty. Each Regional Network (Northwest, Midwest, and Southeast) will be composed of an Administrator Alliance and five discipline-specific Faculty Alliances. University administrators will evaluate existing policies and practices at their collective institutions, taking into consideration intersectional impact factors. In collaboration with faculty, administrators will strategically design and implement comprehensive campus-specific change plans that reduce barriers encountered by women in STEM fields, create more equitable communities, and foster the retention and advancement of a diverse STEM faculty population.
