IRWG Faculty Affiliates

Become an AffiliateThere are over 230 IRWG faculty affiliates from more than 75 different departments which make up a core group we look to for creating collaborations, meeting like-minded scholars, and participating in planning sessions and brainstorming to build ambitious research projects. Gender may be the primary focus of their work, or it may be just one part among many.

Faculty affiliates also take part in Expert Advisory Panels, who convene for conversations and reviews of each other's grant proposals and other similar written work.  These facilitated meetings include IRWG affiliates, postdoctoral fellows, and other gender scholars from the 3 campuses. Attendees will receive a copy of the work to be reviewed in advance. The goal of these panels is to augment our faculty networks and to spur interesting, new relationships and ideas.
