Action Network Group (ANG) breakout sessions
During the latter portion of our webinar, we will convene two concurrent Action Network Group (ANG) breakout sessions. These sessions will allow webinar attendees who are not currently members of one of the 50K Coalition’s ANGs the opportunity to participate and learn about the 50K Coalition ANG strategy development process.
Please read the following ANG descriptions and select the ANG breakout session you would like to attend. All webinar attendees are asked to view a short video that describes the “Turn the Curve” exercise that the ANGs use to facilitate their work.
We will make every effort to place you in the breakout sessions of your choice.
The USSR ANG focuses on two subareas intended to increase our coalition member college and universities’ ability to recruit, enroll, retain, and graduate more women and underrepresented students:
- Recruitment and Admission: Involves developing innovative, culturally relevant, data-driven targeted recruitment strategies of BIPOC and women students from traditional (high schools) and non-traditional sources, including community colleges and undeclared students.
- Retention and Support Services: Involves developing innovative data-driven strategies to track, identify and mitigate factors contributing to achievement gaps with a particular, non-exclusive focus on the first-to-second year and transfer BIPOC and women engineering students.
