We’ve facilitated listening sessions across the country to solicit input and ideas from stakeholders who are committed to diversifying the research workforce across all fields and sectors. Through these energizing discussions with representatives from higher education, private industry and government we have identified the key points below to consider for the Leadership Alliance 2020 Strategic Plan. We will update this list after every listening session; bookmark this page to stay up to date on our progress.
Key themes and Discussion Points:
- Utilize resources at minority-serving institutions to develop additional undergraduate research opportunities
- Develop a membership model that includes government, industry, professional societies, and non-profit organizations
- Coordinate efforts across programs and organizations to leverage resources, broaden awareness of available opportunities, and share best practices
- Convene and participate in policy discussions about diversity, equity, and inclusion at institutional and national levels
