The Tenure Project Conference 2023

July 24-26, 2023
The Wharton School
Philadelphia, PA

The Tenure Project’s mission is to support junior faculty from underrepresented communities to obtain tenure at US business schools.

The Tenure Project offers a supportive environment where junior faculty are welcomed and engaged in programs, events, and dialogues that address the important issues affecting Black, Latinx, and Native junior faculty obtaining tenure in US business schools.

Building on the success of the first Tenure Project Conference, this conference will focus on “learning by doing.” The conference workshops will aim to build community, spur new research and pedagogy, provide access and connection to resources, and create intentional spaces for connection and information sharing.
