These projects will span the academic and research enterprise and will require partnership and consistent communication with faculty, staff, trainees and leaders. You will report to the Director of Strategic Initiatives while collaborating closely with DGSOM’s Portfolio Management Office; Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Office; and Anti-racism Roadmap team.
