Women’s Advance Conference








The UConn Women’s Advance Conference Planning Committee is
seeking proposals by February 25, 2022 for workshops and presentations
for the 2022 UConn Women’s Advance Conference to be held on May 11, 2022.


The UConn Women’s Advance Conference is a professional development opportunity for women staff, faculty and graduate students at all levels of the University that is designed to expand skills, increase knowledge, and enhance networks to promote a more inclusive and supportive working and learning environment.

UConn staff, faculty, graduate students and community professionals are invited to submit proposals that cover a wide range of topics including, but not limited to communication skills, cultural competency, negotiation skills, organizational time-savers, professional networking, leadership development, workplace climate, navigating the tenure process, global engagement and work/life flexibility.


In this time of continued divisiveness among people, and the soaring visibility of racism, sexism,
and other forms of oppression, it is our hope that proposals will seek to build community,
expand skills and increase knowledge to address these important topics.


All proposals must be submitted through the online submission form HERE by February 25, 2022.
