Membership for the coming year has been shaped through consultative conversations with our members, and our strategic advisory groups. We’ve heard clearly that members would value support in:
- promoting a strong sense of belonging and addressing retention
- understanding and responding to changes and challenges in the regulatory
- attracting, retaining, and rewarding talented staff with progressive pathways
- growing a shared leadership of EDI and developing cultural competence
- building a positive research culture.
Led by your feedback we will continue to provide you with resources, networks and development opportunities that respond to your changing needs.
