The University of Maryland ADVANCE program and the School of Public Health invite you to attend an ADVANCE and Womens History Month Lecture by Mary Ann Mason, JD, Professor and Co-Director, Earl Warren Institute for Law and Social Policy

University of California, Berkeley.

Based on her 12 years of longitudinal studies, Professor Mason will address:

  • Effects of family formation on both women and men over their academic careers

  • Ways to keep women in the science pipeline

  • Proven family-friendly best practices for colleges and universities

  • Changing the culture to ensure that both mothers and fathers thrive on family friendly policies

Mason has been a trail-blazer for making higher education more family-friendly for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students.

The UMD ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence is an NSF-funded initiative that aims to transform the institutional culture of our University by facilitating networks, offering individual mentoring and support, and offering information and strategic opportunities for women faculty in all areas of academia.
