Consistent with the mission of Fielding Graduate University to advance social justice, and the priority of the National Science Foundation (NSF) to broaden participation in the STEM disciplines, Fielding, with generous support from NSF, has launched several efforts to enhance the preparation of a diverse, globally engaged STEM workforce. These efforts have focused on the preparation of a new generation of culture-centered women and men to lead diversity and inclusion in STEM in college and universities.

Current Initiatives 

The Fielding/Conclave Leadership Academy

This continuing education experience is designed to enhance the preparation of a cadre of STEM women of color for academic leadership roles in colleges and universities throughout the United States. Housed within Fielding’s Marie Fielder Center for Democracy, Leadership and Education, the program is woven into the Annual STEM Women of Color Conclave, focusing on the cognitive aspects of leadership.
