Sue V. Rosser is an ADVANCE Journal editorial board member, and the Special Advisor for Research Development and External Partnerships in the Chancellor's Office Research Department at California State University. Dr. Rosser delivered the plenary session keynote address at the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) ADVANCE/GSE Program Workshop on October 9, 2017 in Washington, D.C. In the essay constructed from the keynote address, "Intersectionality and ADVANCE", Dr. Rosser discusses the pioneering work on intersectionality by bell hooks, Kimberle Crenshaw, and Patricia Hill Collins. Dr. Rosser explores how ADVANCE has evolved to address intersectionality which she describes as the "reciprocally constructing phenomena an individual experiences because of gender, race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion, country of origin and education, age, disabilities, and other social identities to create a whole that is different from the component identities." 

The ADVANCE Journal was launched in October 2018 and is accepting submissions on a rolling basis.
