Brief Description: A set of measures that assesses the readiness of faculty to take action and adopt the four specific behaviors of collaborating, mentoring, sharing resources, and generating support to advance women scientists.
For the stage of change algorithm, participants read a four-part definition of the action criteria and then rate how much they had participated in each of the four behaviors on a 5-point scale that ranges from 1= “not at all” to 5= “completely.” Then, participants are asked to keep the entire definition of what it means to advance women scientists in mind and to report on their readiness to take the four steps to advance women scientists. The action criterion for stage of change is the faculty member must have taken the four steps of action, but for less than six months.
The decisional balance measure assesses the relative importance of eight pros and cons of taking the steps to advance women scientists. Participants report on a 5-point scale ranging from 1= “not at all important” to 5= “extremely important.”
The self-efficacy measure assesses an individual’s degree of confidence to take the four steps to advance women scientists. Participants report on a 5-point scale ranging from 1= “not at all confident” to 5= “extremely confident.”
