The Leadership Alliance used the process of Appreciative Inquiry to assess our strengths, opportunities, aspirations, and results at listening sessions across the country. Review themes from the listening sessions. Based on the themes we heard from over 150 stakeholders, we have developed a new vision statement and four goals for the 2020 Strategic Plan.
To accelerate the diversification of the research workforce through sustainable collaborations and thought leadership on inclusive excellence
Strategic Planning Goals
- Develop new regional organizational networks that promote awareness of academic and professional development opportunities and connect students and professionals to diverse mentors and role models in research careers.
- Expand programs and resources to ensure seamless education and career transitions.
- Build strategic national and international partnerships to accelerate the development of a diverse and inclusive research workforce.
- Lead national and international discussion to advance knowledge on inclusive excellence in the research workforce.
