The Markey LAUNCH Leadership Academy will provide leadership development skills necessary for leading a diverse, multi-disciplinary cancer center. LAUNCH will leverage virtual and campus-wide resources to implement program activities.

The program duration is 12 months. Participants will be required to participate in regular interactive sessions via in-person and virtual formats. Session content will include access to Academic Impressions webinars, seminar discussion of topics essential for effective leadership and particularly critical for leading a diverse, multidisciplinary workforce. Participants will learn the roles of each Markey Cancer Center leader, the mission of each Markey program and network with university-wide leaders. Participants will partner with a Markey leader to develop a project in alignment with Markey’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion Strategic Plans. Participants will also be required to participate in program evaluations and periodic alumni surveys.

The LAUNCH leadership academy does not provide salary support. Participants will receive funding support for completion of their leadership project and candidates may receive travel support to present their final project at a national conference, e.g., ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology).
