ORWH and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases recently re-issued a request for applications for an Advancing Gender Inclusive Excellence (AGIE) Coordinating Center. The purpose of the AGIE Coordinating Center is to provide the organizational framework for the management, direction, and overall coordination of all common activities aimed at investigating strategies, approaches, and interventions. This includes promoting gender equity or addressing barriers to gender equity for women, at the faculty and leadership levels in many areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). 

The research conducted under the AGIE Coordinating Center will provide a more inclusive environment to enhance gender equity in retention and advancement at the faculty and leadership levels in the STEMM academic and research workforce. The primary vision for the AGIE Coordinating Center is to ensure collaborative coordination of data collection. The AGIE Coordinating Center will serve as a means for developing and operating as a centralized resource hub to collect, store, and disseminate resources for and results of current and future programs. The research is anticipated to include diverse designs, approaches, and multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary academic disciplines. It will also target different or multiple organizational levels (from interpersonal to departmental to institutional).
