Award – NSF GS3NA

Award Announcement

NSF GS3NA Conference Management Support

GOH would like to announce the June 2013 award for the National Science Foundation Gender Summit 3 (NSF GS3NA) – North America Conference Management Support.

NSF GS3NA

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of International and Integrative Activities (OIIA) will host The 3rd Gender Summit – North America (GS3-NA); an international gender summit to bring together key stakeholders in an effort to make positive change towards greater diversity in the science workforce and greater inclusion of the gender dimension in research content. Past Gender Summits (2011 and 2012), which took place in Europe, have established a better understanding of the importance of addressing gender issues in science as a condition of improved science excellence and creating new markets for science knowledge. GS3-NA will bring together research and policy leaders, gender scholars, scientist and engineers whose work involves the gender dimensions, as well as other important actors who play a key role in shaping the science and innovation systems: research funding organizations, professional academies and associations, science journal editors, industry, and civil society organizations. This summit will deliver concrete roadmaps for these groups of stakeholders to use in their response to the call for action to make positive change towards greater diversity in the science workforce and greater inclusion of the gender dimension in research content; and for advancing gender in science knowledge and in engineering, giving women and men an equal role in research and innovation as co-owners and co-solvers of the grand societal challenges.

 

Award – LSAMP Digital Library

Award Announcement

LSAMP Digital Library

GOH would like to announce the June 2013 award for the LSMCE BP DL in conjunction with Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence (a National Science Foundation center).

LSAMP Digital Library

This grant represents the first of a three-phase project that will ultimately design and develop a Louis Stokes Midwest Center of Excellence (LSMCE) BP DL of historical program records, such as data, reports, articles, white papers, videos, and publications. The digital repository of historical program records will build the capacity of both the LSAMP grantee and broadening participation communities by increasing the capacity of LSAMP to foster knowledge sharing and promote diversity in STEM fields and careers. The LSMCE BP DL will develop a system for cataloging the documents and information, digitize the entire collection of documents and records, and house them in a searchable digital library. The LSMCE BP DL will also enable broader dissemination of LSAMP outcomes, impacts, and evidence-based best practices by increasing accessibility to this information.
