MI ACE IR 2020 Annual Report

Directions: The MI-ACE Women’s Network is one of the most active networks in the nation; therefore, the information we submit to the national ACE Women’s Network each year should accurately reflect the impact that the MI-ACE Women’s Network has on women in our state. In that regard, please complete this report as comprehensively as possible, listing information about the activities you have conducted on your campus as part of your responsibilities as the IR for the MI-ACE Women’s Network.Include as much detail (attachments as examples) as possible so we can serve as models for those who are interested in replicating our efforts. The national ACE Women’s Network uses the numbers in our reports to justify budget allocations from ACE and to engender support from granting agencies for special projects that benefit the advancement of women into senior leadership positions.
