The Advocates and Allies Advisory Board (A3B) is a group of women, minorities, and gender diverse individuals who work with the NSF-funded ADVANCE team to guide and advise the Advocates Team. Guidance comes in the form of communicating and prioritizing issues that women, minorities, and gender diverse individuals experience at Michigan Tech that impede their career growth and success. Guidance and oversight also come in the form of structuring and directing the education of the Advocates via published resources and lived experiences, the best topics, and approaches for the Advocates.
When advocating for policies and practices, the goal is that the A3B and Advocates will work closely together with the goal that well-intentioned ideas translate into policies and practices that most effectively achieve the goals of equity.
