Thank you to the people at Oregon State University's department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies for the wonderful profile on ADAVANCE Co-Pi Dr. Susan Shaw and ADVANCE Senior Staff Dr. Nana Osei-Kofi titled "Meet the minds behind OSU's STEM diversity program." The road to institutional change is long, but it is an honor to walk (run, skip, crawl, summersault) down this road along side these amazing people! See an excerpt below and click the title above to read the full story.

"Dr. Susan Shaw, professor in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program is a co-principal investigator for ADVANCE, along with Dr. Nana Osei-Kofi, associate professor also in the WGSS program and the director of OSU’s DPD program, who is a senior personnel for ADVANCE. With their background in WGSS, they believe in broadening the focus of ADVANCE to create conversations around intersectionality, drawing from systems of oppression theories, improving things for the diversity of marginalized people and working to improve policies that are deeply embedded in institution. OSU’s Difference, Power and Discrimination Program has also been a central part of ADVANCE from the beginning."
