NC State has pledged to:
- Review existing campus-wide research on women and girls of color and share the results of the study with members of the collaborative to share best practices, highlight areas of institutional strength, and highlight opportunities to grow new areas of scholarship.
- Leverage research funds to give faculty added incentives faculty to research women and girls of color.
- Identify opportunities to invest in research-intensive, high-impact course proposals to allow undergraduate and graduate students to participate in new research on women and girls of color.
- Support opportunities to host cross-institutional working groups, conferences and research projects that highlight research on women and girls of color.
Dr. Blair L.M. Kelley is leading NC State’s newly formed Growing Research on Women of color (GROW) Project. Dr. Kelley reached out to “all faculty who engage in research – from biomedical engineering and human health, to communication and social sciences, to history and the humanities, ”who are “pursuing research questions that focus on women and girls from under-represented groups,” describing GROW as “an opportunity to identify potential partners for interdisciplinary collaboration and to secure funding to support that research.”
“We hope this will shed light on the ongoing work in this area, demonstrate gaps in what we can be doing and show areas where we can grow and collaborate with one another.”
