Overview of Webinar: AGEP seeks to build on research and literature concerning racial and ethnic equity in order to increase the number of historically underrepresented minority faculty in STEM. Furthering the AGEP goal requires advancing knowledge about new academic STEM career pathway models, and about evidence-based systemic or institutional change initiatives to promote equity and the professional advancement of the AGEP populations who are pursuing, entering, and continuing in non-tenure and tenure-track STEM faculty positions.
