Building Capacity for Institutional Transformation in the 21st Century: Women of Color in STEM and SBS Fields

This one-day Roundtable convened UC faculty and academic administrators who play key roles in recruitment and retention of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and SBS (social and behavioral sciences) faculty.
