A Continuum of Mentoring, A Legacy of Scholars

If the balance of underrepresented groups in American academic institutions and the research workforce is to be effectively addressed, it is imperative that young people have role models. For over 25 years, The Leadership Alliance, a consortium of over 30 institutions, has provided support in the shape of encouragement, mentorship and training.  Our data below demonstrate how the Alliance is tipping the scales and populating a workforce reflective of the diverse fabric of our society.

"The financial support that the Leadership Alliance gave me was crucial, but the experience also came with this wonderful moral support. You can try things out and have autonomy. It was incredible and what I needed most at that time in my life."
