The first annual ASCEND regional meetings will bring Alliances together and begin building the rapport and foundation that will serve our newly formed friendships, partnerships, and collaborations for years to come. We will work to find common goals and needs for individual career advancement. We will also work to develop mechanisms for increasing diversity and inclusion in STEM within our departments and on our collective campuses. The theme for our first year is Voice Positioning and the importance of finding our own authenticity. Increasing our courage to speak up and building skill sets to make us more effective communicators will increase our success at making the types of long lasting changes that we envision within our communities.
