For TTOs and university research in general, the benefits of inclusiveness and diversity are clear — more ideas emerge, more IP is created, and a wider swath of your community becomes part of the innovation ecosystem. Clearly, encouraging a shift toward parity in research commercialization is more than just the societal right thing to do — it promotes economic growth. But how? Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has secured leaders from two of the most successful university programs designed to bolster inclusiveness and diversity for this strategy-filled, eye-opening webinar: Empowering and Supporting Women and Underserved Populations in University Innovation and Entrepreneurship, scheduled for December 17th.

Kathy Sohar, PhD, Director of the Women’s Collaboratory for Innovators with UF Innovate at the University of Florida, and Nichole Mercier, PhD, Assistant Vice Chancellor at Washington University in St. Louis and the Managing Director of the Washington University Office of Technology Management, will discuss their respective programs, how they are bringing underserved communities to the commercialization table, and bringing positive change to their campuses — and how you can too.
