Faculty Diversity

Our vision is to increase faculty diversity and promote a hospitable climate that supports the success of all faculty at NC State

We catalyze and facilitate faculty efforts, provide programming with input from faculty, and serve as a clearing house for information about faculty diversity.

"We learn the most from those we have the least in common with. Diversity that arises from ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, professional, and experiential differences forms fertile ground for innovation."

DeSimone and Ferrell, 2014, Science Translational Medicine

Reading Circle. The book examines what psychologists, economists, and sociologists have learned about how women’s choices are perceived at work. It’s a book that tackles all-too-common stereotypes about women as decision-makers and offers advice for navigating those beliefs.

If you are interested in participating in a reading circle, we ask that you commit to attending at least 4 of the 6 sessions. Please RSVP to gumpertz@ncsu.edu.
