Engaging the SoE community in achieving and continually reviewing and refining their vision of inclusion and equity and practices associated with that vision; and
Seeking and creating positive and productive opportunities for partnerships and relationships with internal and external constituencies to further the goals of diversity, equity and inclusion within the SoE.
