To encourage new programs that enact positive change for diversity in STEM, the Expanding Potential Workshop organizers seek to help the community establish a portfolio of Expanding Potential Seed Projects that develop innovative diversity initiatives at their home institutions that can easily be replicated across many institutions. Projects were highlighted at the Expanding Potential 2016 Workshop, giving project developers and workshop attendees the opportunity to learn from one another and develop/start new or similar projects.
Congratulations to the Expanding Potential 2015-6 Seed Project Awardees! Read more about their proposed projects below. The final reports are meant to give an honest perspective into the process of each awardee's experience in setting-up their project and advice on how you can scale and sustain the project at your own institution. Read about the overall 2015-6 program here and how the awardees are a new cohort of leaders in diversity and inclusion program development.
