Cultural Programming in the People’s Republic of ChinaDepartment of StateChinaGrantDiplomacy; American Culture; Foreign Policy February The U.S. Government believes that building mutual understanding is a cornerstone of U.S. foreign policy abroad. U.S. embassies and consulates abroad seek to tell America’s story through explaining U.S. policies, values, culture, and history. To that end, the U.S. Mission to China (Embassy Beijing and Consulates General Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Shenyang, and Wuhan) seeks to support activities that, whether through existing partnerships between eligible U.S. institutions and their Chinese counterparts or through new ties, help explain American culture to the people of China. Such programming will enhance and broaden the cultural and academic outreach of the U.S. Mission in China. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing seeks to ensure that programming is representative of the depth and breadth of U.S. culture, values, polices, and history. The U.S.-China relationship is one of the United States’ most important bilateral relationships. A great deal of work remains to be done in fostering mutual understanding between the peoples of the two nations. Cultural exchanges provide excellent opportunities to help people better understand others’ history, values, and traditions.

ADVANCE: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers (ADVANCE)National Science FoundationGlobalGrantScience; technology; mathmatics; engineering; womenMarch Despite significant increases in the proportion of women pursuing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) doctoral degrees, women are significantly underrepresented as faculty, particularly in upper ranks, and in academic administrative positions, in almost all STEM fields. The problems of recruitment, retention, and advancement that are the causes of this underrepresentation vary by discipline and across groups of women faculty (e.g., by race/ethnicity, disability status, sexual orientation, foreign-born and foreign-trained status, and faculty appointment type). The ADVANCE program is designed to foster gender equity through a focus on the identification and elimination of organizational barriers that impede the full participation and advancement of all women faculty in academic institutions. The goals of the ADVANCE program are (1) to develop systemic approaches to increase the representation and advancement of women in academic STEM[1] careers; (2) to develop innovative and sustainable ways to promote gender equity that involve both men and women in the STEM academic workforce; and (3) to contribute to the research knowledge base on gender equity and the intersection of gender and other identities in STEM academic careers.
